Psalm 16

Psalm 16

A miktam of David.

My God, keep me safe.
    I go to you for safety.

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord.
    Without you, I don’t have anything that is good.”
I say about God’s people who live in our land, “They are the noble ones.
    I take great delight in them.”
Those who run after other gods
    will suffer more and more.
I will not pour out offerings of blood to those gods.
    My lips will not speak their names.

Lord, you alone are everything I need.
    You make my life secure.
I am very pleased with what you have given me.
    I am very happy with what I’ve received from you.

I will praise the Lord. He gives me good advice.
    Even at night my heart teaches me.
I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
    He is at my right hand.
    So I will always be secure.

So my heart is glad. Joy is on my tongue.
    My body also will be secure.
10 You will not leave me in the place of the dead.
    You will not let your faithful one rot away.
11 You always show me the path of life.
    You will fill me with joy when I am with you.
    You will make me happy forever at your right hand.

诗篇 16

信靠之福

大卫的诗。

1上帝啊!我投靠你,
求你保护我。
我对耶和华说:“你是我的主,
我美好的一切都从你而来。”
世上敬畏你的人极其尊贵,
是我所喜爱的。
追随假神的人,其愁苦必有增无减。
我必不向他们的假神献上血祭,
口中也不提假神的名号。
耶和华啊,你是我的一切,
你赐我一切福分,
你掌管我的一切。
你赐我佳美之地,
我的产业何其美!
我要称颂赐我教诲的耶和华,
我的良心也在夜间提醒我。
我常以耶和华为念,
祂在我右边,我必不动摇。
因此,我的心欢喜,
我的灵快乐,
我的身体也安然无恙。
10 你不会把我的灵魂撇在阴间,
也不会让你的圣者身体朽坏。
11 你把生命之路指示我,
你右手有永远的福乐,
我在你面前充满喜乐。
