Song of Trust and Security in God
A Miktam of David.
2 I say to the Lord, “Thou art my Lord;
I have no good apart from thee.”[a]
in whom is all my delight.
their libations of blood I will not pour out
or take their names upon my lips.
thou holdest my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
yea, I have a goodly heritage.
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I keep the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
my body also dwells secure.
10 For thou dost not give me up to Sheol,
or let thy godly one see the Pit.
in thy presence there is fulness of joy,
in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.
