Tehillim 16 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

16 (A mikhtam Dovid). Be shomer over me, O El: for in Thee do I hide myself.

I said unto Hashem, Thou art Adonoi of me; besides Thee I have no good;

But to the Kedoshim that are in ha’aretz, they are the glorious ones, in whom is all my delight.

Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after other g-ds; their nesakhim (drink offerings) of dahm will I not offer, nor take up their shmot (names [of idols]) on my lips.

Hashem is the chelek (allotted share) of mine inheritance and of my kos (cup [of blessing]); Thou maintainest my goral (lot, allotment by the divine will).

The boundary lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly nachalah (inheritance).

I will bless Hashem, Who hath given me counsel; my mind also instructs me in the night seasons.

I have set Hashem always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.

Therefore my lev is glad, and my kavod rejoiceth; my basar also shall dwell securely [see 1Th 5:23 OJBC].

10 For Thou wilt not abandon my nefesh in Sheol; neither wilt Thou allow Thine Chasid to see shachat (corruption, the pit, the grave, the abyss of corruption; see Ac 2:24).

11 Thou wilt show me the Orach Chayyim (the path of life); in Thy presence is fulness of joy, at Thy right hand there are pleasures netzach (for evermore).
