Psalm 16

The Lord the Psalmist’s Portion in Life and Deliverer in Death.

A [a]Mikhtam of David.

1Preserve me, O God, for I take refuge in You.
[b]I said to the Lord, “You are [c]my Lord;
I have no good besides You.”
As for the [d]saints who are in the earth,
[e]They are the majestic ones in whom is all my delight.
The [f]sorrows of those who have [g]bartered for another god will be multiplied;
I shall not pour out their drink offerings of blood,
Nor will I take their names upon my lips.

The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You support my lot.
The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.

I will bless the Lord who has counseled me;
Indeed, my [h]mind instructs me in the night.
I have set the Lord continually before me;
Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices;
My flesh also will dwell securely.
10 For You will not abandon my soul to [i]Sheol;
Nor will You [j]allow Your [k]Holy One to [l]undergo decay.
11 You will make known to me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

Salme 16

Glæden i Guds nærvær

1En sang af David.

Åh, Gud, beskyt mig,
    for jeg søger ly hos dig.
Du er min Herre, og alt det gode,
    jeg har oplevet, kommer fra dig.

De gudfrygtige i landet er mine helte,
    og jeg glæder mig over dem.
Men de, som tilbeder andre guder,
    oplever mange sorger.
Jeg vil ikke nævne deres guders navne
    eller være med til at bringe dem ofre.

Herre, du opfylder alle mine behov,
    mit liv er i dine hænder.
Du har velsignet mig med et herligt land
    og givet mig en vidunderlig arv.

Jeg vil prise Herren, min Rådgiver,
    selv om natten vejleder han mig.
Jeg stoler altid på Herren.
    Han står ved min side, så jeg ikke falder.
Derfor kan jeg fryde mig og synge glædessange.
    Også mit legeme er i sikkerhed,
10 for du vil ikke efterlade mig blandt de døde.
    Du vil ikke lade din hengivne tjener gå i forrådnelse.
11 Du har vist mig vejen til livet,
    hos dig fyldes jeg med glæde,
        du giver mig den evige herlighed.
