A pillar inscription for David.
Preserve me, O Lord, for in Thee have I put my hope. I said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord, for Thou hast no need of my goods.
In the saints that are in His earth hath the Lord wrought wonders; He hath fulfilled all His desires in them.
Their infirmities were multiplied; they hastened afterwards.
Their meetings for blood will I not assemble, nor make remembrance of their names by my lips.
The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup; it is Thou that restorest mine inheritance to me.
Portions are fallen unto me among the best places, for mine inheritance is most excellent to me.
I will bless the Lord, Who hath given me understanding; my reins also have instructed me till the night season.
I beheld the Lord always before me, because He is at my right hand, that I be not moved.
Therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; my flesh also shall rest in hope.
For Thou wilt not leave my soul in Hades, neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption.
Thou hast made known to me the paths of life; with Thy presence shalt Thou fill me with joy; at Thy right hand there are delights for evermore.
