Keep me safe, O God,
for I have come to you for refuge.
2 I said to the Lord , “You are my Master!
Every good thing I have comes from you.”
The godly people in the land
are my true heroes!
I take pleasure in them!
Troubles multiply for those who chase after other gods.
I will not take part in their sacrifices of blood
or even speak the names of their gods.
Lord , you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.
You guard all that is mine.
6 The land you have given me is a pleasant land.
What a wonderful inheritance!
I will bless the Lord who guides me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I know the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. 2
My body rests in safety.
10 For you will not leave my soul among the dead 3
or allow your holy one 4 to rot in the grave.
You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever. 5
