Book of Psalms

The Douay-Rheims Bible


Chapter 15

1    The inscription of a title to David himself. Preserve me, O Lord, for I have put trust in thee.
2    I have said to the Lord, thou art my God, for thou hast no need of my goods.
3    To the saints, who are in his land, he hath made wonderful all my desires in them.
4    Their infirmities were multiplied: afterwards they made haste. I will not gather together their meetings for blood offerings: nor will I be mindful of their names by my lips.
5    The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup: it is thou that wilt restore my inheritance to me.
6    The lines are fallen unto me in goodly places: for my inheritance is goodly to me.
7    I will bless the Lord, who hath given me understanding: moreover my reins also have corrected me even till night.
8    I set the Lord always in my sight: for he is at my right hand, that I be not moved.
9    Therefore my heart hath been glad, and my tongue hath rejoiced: moreover my flesh also shall rest in hope.
10    Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; nor wilt then give thy holy one to see corruption.
11    Thou hast made known to me the ways of life, thou shalt fill me with joy with thy countenance: at thy right hand are delights even to the end.
