A Prayer of Confidence.  Psalm 16(v15)

A Miktam of David.

1Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2I say to Yahweh,
"You are my Yahweh; I have no good apart from you."

3As for the saints in the land,
they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.

4Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows;
their libations of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.

5Yahweh is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
yea, I have a goodly heritage.
7I bless Yahweh who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8I keep Yahweh always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

9Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices;
my body also dwells secure.
10For you not give me up to Sheol,
or let your godly one see the Pit.

11You show me the path of life;
in your presence there is fulness of joy,
in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.

This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
