P  S  A  L .   X  V  I   (16)

Michtam of David.

1   PReserve mee, O God: for in thee doe I trust.
2   O my soule thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my well doing extendeth not to thee,
3   But to the Saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent: all my delight is in them.
4   The sorowes of them, that offer to another God, shall be multiplied: their offerings of blood will I not offer, neither make mention of their names with my lips.
5   The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance, and of my cup: thou shalt maintaine my lot.
6   The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places, yea, I have a faire heritage.
7   I will praise the Lord, who hath given me counsell: my reines also teach me in the nights.
8   I have set the Lord alwayes before me: for he is at my right hand: therefore I shall not slide.
9   Wherefore mine heart is glad, and my tongue rejoyceth: my flesh also doth rest in hope.
10   For thou wilt not leave my soule in the grave: neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy one to see corruption.
11   Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is the fulnesse of joy: and at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
