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.

Psalm 16 (KJVS)

[1] «Michtam H4387 of David H1732.» Preserve H8104 (8798) me, O God H410: for in thee do I put my trust H2620 (8804).
[2] [O my soul], thou hast said H559 (8804) unto the LORD H3068, Thou [art] my Lord H136: my goodness H2896 [extendeth] not to thee;
[3] [But] to the saints H6918 that H1992 [are] in the earth H776, and [to] the excellent H117, in whom [is] all my delight H2656.
[4] Their sorrows H6094 shall be multiplied H7235 (8799) [that] hasten H4116 (8804) [after] another H312 [god]: their drink offerings H5262 of blood H1818 will I not offer H5258 (8686), nor H1077 take up H5375 (8799) their names H8034 into my lips H8193.
[5] The LORD H3068 [is] the portion H4490 of mine inheritance H2506 and of my cup H3563: thou maintainest H8551 (8802) my lot H1486.
[6] The lines H2256 are fallen H5307 (8804) unto me in pleasant H5273 [places]; yea, I have a goodly H8231 (8804) heritage H5159.
[7] I will bless H1288 (8762) the LORD H3068, who hath given me counsel H3289 (8804): my reins H3629 also instruct H3256 (8765) me in the night seasons H3915.
[8] I have set H7737 (8765) the LORD H3068 always H8548 before me: because [he is] at my right hand H3225, I shall not be moved H4131 (8735).
[9] Therefore my heart H3820 is glad H8055 (8804), and my glory H3519 rejoiceth H1523 (8799): my flesh H1320 also shall rest H7931 (8799) in hope H983.
[10] For thou wilt not leave H5800 (8799) my soul H5315 in hell H7585; neither wilt thou suffer H5414 (8799) thine Holy One H2623 to see H7200 (8800) corruption H7845.
[11] Thou wilt shew H3045 (8686) me the path H734 of life H2416: in thy presence H6440 [is] fulness H7648 of joy H8057; at thy right hand H3225 [there are] pleasures H5273 for evermore H5331.

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!
