The Psalms

A Goodly Heritage
Michtam of David.

1  Preserve me, O God:
for in thee do I put my trust.
2  O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord:
my goodness extendeth not to thee;
3  but to the saints that are in the earth,
and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
4  Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god:
their drink offerings of blood will I not offer,
nor take up their names into my lips.
5  The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup:
thou maintainest my lot.
6  The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places;
yea, I have a goodly heritage.
7  I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel:
my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
8  I have set the LORD always before me:
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest in hope.
10  For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; 1 Cor. 15.4
neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Acts 13.35
11  Thou wilt show me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy; Acts 2.25-28
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
