A Pillar of Inscription of David, 15.
(Psalm 16 – Hebrew Numbering)
Keep me, O Lord, for in Thee have I hoped.
I said unto the Lord: Thou art my Lord; for of my goods, no need hast Thou.
In the saints that are in His earth hath the Lord been wondrous; He hath wrought all His desires in them.
Their infirmities increased; thereupon they hastened.
I will not assemble their assemblies of blood, nor will I make remembrance of their name through my lips.
The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup.
Thou art He that restorest mine inheritance unto me.
Portions have fallen to me that are among the best, for mine inheritance is most excellent to me.
I will bless the Lord Who hath given me understanding; moreover, even till night have my reins instructed me.
I beheld the Lord ever before me, for He is at my right hand, that I might not be shaken.
Therefore did my heart rejoice and my tongue was glad; moreover, my flesh shall dwell in hope.
For Thou wilt not abandon my soul in hades, nor wilt Thou suffer Thy Holy One to see corruption.
Thou hast made known to me the ways of life, Thou wilt fill me with gladness with Thy countenance; delights are in Thy right hand for ever.
