Psalm of the Day Bread of Life Psalm 16
You Will Not Abandon My Soul
1Preserve me, | O God,*
for in you I take | refuge.
2I say to the Lord, “You | are my Lord;*
I have no good a- | part from you.”
3As for the saints | in the land,*
they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all | my delight.
4The sorrows of those who run after another god shall | multiply;*
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names | on my lips.
5The Lord is my chosen portion | and my cup;*
you | hold my lot.
6The lines have fallen for me in pleasant | places;*
indeed, I have a beautiful in- | heritance.
7I bless the Lord who gives me | counsel;*
in the night also my heart in- | structs me.
8I have set the Lord always be- | fore me;*
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be | shaken.
9Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being re- | joices;*
my flesh also | dwells secure.
10For you will not abandon my soul | to Sheol,*
or let your holy one see cor- | ruption.
11You make known to me the | path of life;*
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures for- | evermore.
