Psalm 15


1 Keep me safe, my God,
   for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
    apart from you I have no good thing.”
3 I say of the holy people who are in the land,
   “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”
4 Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.
   I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods
   or take up their names on my lips.
5 Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
   you make my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
   surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
   even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
   With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
   my body also will rest secure,
10 | because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
     nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
11 | You make known to me the path of life;
     you will fill me with joy in your presence,
     with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
