To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.
1
Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
2
He only is my rock and my salvation;
he is my defence;
I shall not be greatly moved.
3
How long will ye imagine mischief against a man?
ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
4
They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly.
Selah.
5
My soul, wait thou only upon God;
for my expectation is from him.
6
He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence;
I shall not be moved.
7
In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8
Trust in him at all times;
ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us.
Selah.
9
Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
10
Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11
God hath spoken once;
twice have I heard this;
that power belongeth unto God.
12
Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
