Psalm 16 (WEBP)

[1] Preserve me, God, for I take refuge in you.
[2] My soul, you have said to Yahweh, “You are my Lord. Apart from you I have no good thing.”
[3] As for the saints who are in the earth, they are the excellent ones in whom is all my delight.
[4] Their sorrows shall be multiplied who give gifts to another god. Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, nor take their names on my lips.
[5] Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup. You made my lot secure.
[6] The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places. Yes, I have a good inheritance.
[7] I will bless Yahweh, who has given me counsel. Yes, my heart instructs me in the night seasons.
[8] I have set Yahweh always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
[9] Therefore my heart is glad, and my tongue rejoices. My body shall also dwell in safety.
[10] For you will not leave my soul in Sheol, neither will you allow your holy one to see corruption.
[11] You will show me the path of life. In your presence is fullness of joy. In your right hand there are pleasures forever more.

Psalm 16:10 Sheol is the place of the dead.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 16 (YLT)

[1] Preserve me, O God, for I did trust in Thee.
[2] Thou hast said to Jehovah, ‘My Lord Thou art;’ My good is not for thine own sake;
[3] For the holy ones who are in the land, And the honourable, all my delight is in them.
[4] Multiplied are their griefs, Who have hastened backward; I pour not out their libations of blood, Nor do I take up their names on my lips.
[5] Jehovah is the portion of my share, and of my cup, Thou-Thou dost uphold my lot.
[6] Lines have fallen to me in pleasant places, Yea, a beauteous inheritance is for me.
[7] I bless Jehovah who hath counselled me; Also in the nights my reins instruct me.
[8] I did place Jehovah before me continually, Because-at my right hand I am not moved.
[9] Therefore hath my heart been glad, And my honour doth rejoice, Also my flesh dwelleth confidently:
[10] For Thou dost not leave my soul to Sheol, Nor givest thy saintly one to see corruption.
[11] Thou causest me to know the path of life; Fulness of joys is with Thy presence, Pleasant things by Thy right hand for ever!
