Value Aquired!

7 07 2012

As we look at America’s Faith I am reminded of what value a great biblical King put on God. That King was David, the writer of the Psalms and a man after God’s own heart. He was not a man without sin, but in the end, he knew God and his faith was secure.


Today I leave you to read Psalm 16 and in the posts which follow we will discover the value King David saw in God. The 16th psalm contains only eleven verses and is one of six Michtam (golden) psalms, for its great value to David the author! I hope you enjoy this BBE version (1965 – Bible in Basic English).


Psa 16:1  Michtam. Of David. Keep me safe, O God: for in you I have put my faith.

Psa 16:2  O my soul, you have said to the Lord, You are my Lord: I have no good but you.

Psa 16:3  As for the saints who are in the earth, they are the noble in whom is all my delight.

Psa 16:4  Their sorrows will be increased who go after another god: I will not take drink offerings from their hands, or take their names on my lips.

Psa 16:5  The Lord is my heritage and the wine of my cup; you are the supporter of my right.

Psa 16:6  Fair are the places marked out for me; I have a noble heritage.

Psa 16:7  I will give praise to the Lord who has been my guide; knowledge comes to me from my thoughts in the night.

Psa 16:8  I have put the Lord before me at all times; because he is at my right hand, I will not be moved.

Psa 16:9  Because of this my heart is glad, and my glory is full of joy: while my flesh takes its rest in hope.

Psa 16:10  For you will not let my soul be prisoned in the underworld; you will not let your loved one see the place of death.

Psa 16:11  You will make clear to me the way of life; where you are joy is complete; in your right hand there are pleasures for ever and ever.
