Guard me, O El, for I have taken refuge in You.
I have said to YHWH, 'You are YHWH, I have no good beside You.'
As for the set-apart ones who are on the earth, They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.
The sorrows of those who run after another one are increased; I would not pour out their drink offerings of blood, Nor take up their names on my lips.
YHWH is the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You uphold my lot.
Boundary lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, a good inheritance is mine.
I bless YHWH who has given me counsel; My kidneys also instruct me in the nights.
I have set YHWH always before me; Because He is at my right hand I am not shaken.
Therefore my heart was glad, and my esteem rejoices; My flesh also dwells in safety.
For You do not leave my being in the grave, Neither let Your Kind One see corruption.
You show me the path of life; In Your presence is joy to satisfaction; At Your right hand are pleasures forever.
