16
(A special psalm by David.)
The Best Choice
1 Protect me, Lord God!
I run to you for safety,
2 and I have said,
“Only you are my Lord!
Every good thing I have
is a gift from you.”

3 Your people are wonderful,
and they make me happy,
t 16.3 Your people ... happy: Or “I was happy worshiping gods I thought were powerful.”
4 but worshipers of other gods
will have much sorrow.
u 16.4 but ... sorrow: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
I refuse to offer sacrifices
of blood to those gods
or worship in their name.

5 You, Lord, are all I want!
You are my choice,
and you keep me safe.
6 You make my life pleasant,
and my future is bright.

7 I praise you, Lord,
for being my guide.
Even in the darkest night,
your teachings fill my mind.
8 I will always look to you,
16.8-11 Ac 2.25-28.
as you stand beside me
and protect me from fear.
9 With all my heart,
I will celebrate,
and I can safely rest.

10 I am your chosen one.
16.10 Ac 13.35.
You won't leave me in the grave
or let my body decay.
11 You have shown me
the path to life,
and you make me glad
by being near to me.
Sitting at your right side,
v 16.11 right side: The place of power and honor.
I will always be joyful.
