The Promises of Psalm 16 Expanded

About a year ago, I was thinking about my life verse, Psalm 16:8, “I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” As I looked it up in my Bible with the surrounding verses of Psalm 16, the references to many other Scripture passages also spoke peace and encouragement to my soul. So I wrote those passages down, and am now sharing them with you in an “expanded” version of Psalm 16. References are to the Psalms unless noted otherwise.

16:1  Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.

16:5  Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.

23:5  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

116:13 I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord.

16:6  The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.

Num. 36:7  No inheritance in Israel is to pass from tribe to tribe, for every Israelite shall keep the tribal land inherited from his forefathers.

16:7  I will praise the Lord who counsels me, even at night my heart instructs me.

73:24  You guide me with your counsel and afterwards you will take me into glory.

16:8  I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my RIGHT HAND, I will not be shaken.

73:23  Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my RIGHT HAND.

16:9  Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body will also rest secure.

16:10  Because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.

73:26  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my hear and my portion forever.

17:15  And I — in righteousness–I will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

16:11a  You have made known to me the path of life.

Prov. 15:24  The path of life leads upward for the wise to keep him from going down to the grave.

16:11b  You will fill me iwth joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

80:17  Let your hand rest on the man at your RIGHT HAND, the son of man you have raised up for yourself.

15:5b  He who does these things will never be shaken.

18:29  With your help, I can advance against a troop; with my God, I can scale a wall.

18:30  As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him.

18:32  It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.

18:35  You give me your shield of victory and your RIGHT HAND sustains me; you stoop down to make me great.

I pray these words of Scripture are encouraging to you and let you know that God IS at your RIGHT HAND whenever you need Him!
