Psalms Chapter 16



1 (Michtam of David.) Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.

2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;

3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.

5 The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

A disciple's Psalms Chapter 16 comment on 8/12/2017, 4:49am...

"Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust." There's a lot of practical understanding of life that is made light of, under a misconception of what is a spiritual life. e.g.; so much of what David wrote has to do with our life in the world; such as it is; with the lessons conveying the spiritual message. If this life is really so unimportant why does Jesus heal the sick, and raise the dead?

 


Atta Oppong Boahen's Psalms Chapter 16 comment on 7/19/2017, 5:56am...

The Lord is good all the time...is good. The flesh lust against the spirit and vice versa. This conflict is fueled by the deception of unseen Spiritual forces. The Bible says that humans in nature wrestle not against flesh and blood, but the forces in the atmosphere and around that wants to turn people from the truth. These forces known as the old serpent deceives many that God does not exist
