You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor.

Psalm 16:7-11
I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

  2. Psalm 16:7-11
    I will praise the Holy Spirit of God, who counsels me as a guide in the darkness as darkness is the wanting of his light; even in darkness among the evil my heart instructs me. I have set the Holy Spirit of God always before me To Clear the path of righteousness. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken to abandon God's purpose in life. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices because what I speak from my lips does not defile me because I honor him by my words and actions; my body also will rest secure as a pure vessel, a host for the Holy Spirit to fill and do God's will for it is God's Holy Spirit that is Lord of the Hosts who gave the breath of life at God's command, because the Holy Spirit of God will not abandon me to the grave as I have divorced the wife of my youth, the flesh of which is not sustainable in spirit and joined with the bridegroom, the Holy Spirit, nor will the Holy Spirit of God let your Holy One see decay as I have become Holy in his light. You have made known to me the path of life since the Garden of Eden that Man created both Male and Female were created from dust and given spirit, cursed we were to toil the earth and plant the seed, as we were once not of the world and we had become of the world seeking our way back toiling ourselves to be free of the earth from which we were first free yet we were blinded and now we see; you will fill me with joy in your presence, as once we mature in spirit and except your precious Holy spirit we once again have communion with our God Lord of all.
