Delighting In Dependance

PSALMS 16
A CRY FOR PROTECTION V.1-2 Preserve me,
TO THE ONLY ALMIGHTY        O God:
TO THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE  for in you do I

put my trust.
WHO KEEPS ALL HIS PROMISES

O my soul, you have said unto the LORD,
WHO CONTROLS ALL THE POSSIBILITIES
You are my Lord:
WHO ALONE IS MY PROFICIENCY

my goodness extends not to you;
(without you nothing makes sense)
A CONTENTMENT FOR THE PRIVILEGED V.3
THEY ARE SEPARATE But to the saints that

are in the earth,
THEY ARE SPECIAL     and to the excellent,
THEY ARE SATISFYING

in whom is all my delight.
A COLLAPSE FOR PRETENSE V.4-5
THEY ARE TRAUMATIZED

Their sorrows shall be multiplied
THEY ARE TREACHEROUS

that hasten after another god:
THEY ARE DESERTED

their drink offerings of blood will I not offer
THEY ARE DISCARDED

nor take up their names into my lips.
A CELEBRATION FOR OUR PROSPERITY V.6-8
THE LORD IS MY REWARD The LORD

is the portion of my inheritance
THE LORD IS MY REFRESHMENT

and of my cup
THE LORD IS MY RELIEF You maintain my lot.
THE LORD IS MY REAL ESTATE

The lines are fallen to me in pleasant places
THE LORD IS MY RICHES

I have a goodly heritage.
THE LORD IS MY RESOLUTION

I will bless the LORD,
THE LORD IS MY RESOURCE

who has given me counsel:
THE LORD IS MY REFLECTION

my reins also instruct me in the night season
THE LORD IS MY REMEMBRANCE

I have set the LORD always before me:
THE LORD KEEPS ME FROM BEING RATTLED

because he is at my right hand,

I shall not be moved
A CALCULATION OF MY POSSESSIONS V.9-11
I HAVE PLEASURE IN MY INNER FEELINGS

Therefore my heart is glad,
I PROJECT PLEASURE IN MY EXPRESSIONS

and my glory rejoices
MY ENTIRE BEING IS AT PEACE

my flesh also shall rest in hope
BECAUSE I WILL BE RESURRECTED

For you will not leave my soul in hell
BECAUSE I WILL BE RESTORED

neither will you suffer your

Holy One to see corruption
BECAUSE I WILL BE REVIVED

You will show me the path of life:
BECAUSE I WILL BE REJUVENATED

in your presence is fulness of joy;

BECAUSE I WILL BE RELAXED

at you right hand there are

pleasures for evermore.
