So foolish [was] I, and ignorant: I was [as] a beast before thee.
Nevertheless I [am] continually with thee: thou hast holden [me] by my right hand.
Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me [to] glory.
Whom have I in heaven [but thee]? and [there is] none upon earth [that] I desire beside thee.
My flesh and my heart faileth: [but] God [is] the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
But [it is] good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
