{To the chief Musician.
On Jeduthun.
A Psalm of David.}
Upon God alone doth my soul rest peacefully;
from him is my salvation.
2
He only is my rock and my salvation;
my high fortress: I shall not be greatly moved.
3
How long will ye assail a man;
will ye [seek], all of you, to break him down as a bowing wall or a tottering fence?
4
They only consult to thrust [him] down from his excellency;
they delight in lies;
they bless with their mouth, but in their inward part they curse.
Selah.
5
Upon God alone, O my soul, rest peacefully;
for my expectation is from him.
6
He only is my rock and my salvation;
my high fortress: I shall not be moved.
7
With God is my salvation and my glory;
the rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.
8
Confide in him at all times, ye people;
pour out your heart before him: God is our refuge.
Selah.
9
Men of low degree are only vanity;
men of high degree, a lie: laid in the balance, they go up together [lighter] than vanity.
10
Put not confidence in oppression, and become not vain in robbery;
if wealth increase, set not your heart upon it.
11
Once hath God spoken, twice have I heard this, that strength [belongeth] unto God.
12
And unto thee, O Lord, [belongeth] loving-kindness;
for *thou* renderest to every man according to his work.
