A Secret Treasure of David. Preserve me, O God, for I did trust in Thee.
Thou hast said to Jehovah, 'My Lord Thou [art];' My good [is] not for thine own sake;
For the holy ones who [are] in the land, And the honourable, all my delight [is] in them.
Multiplied are their griefs, [Who] have hastened backward; I pour not out their libations of blood, Nor do I take up their names on my lips.
Jehovah [is] the portion of my share, and of my cup, Thou -- Thou dost uphold my lot.
Lines have fallen to me in pleasant places, Yea, a beauteous inheritance [is] for me.
I bless Jehovah who hath counselled me; Also [in] the nights my reins instruct me.
I did place Jehovah before me continually, Because -- at my right hand I am not moved.
Therefore hath my heart been glad, And my honour doth rejoice, Also my flesh dwelleth confidently:
For Thou dost not leave my soul to Sheol, Nor givest thy saintly one to see corruption.
Thou causest me to know the path of life; Fulness of joys [is] with Thy presence, Pleasant things by Thy right hand for ever!
