1
¶ MY soul waits upon God;
from him comes my salvation.
2
He only is my God and my salvation;
he is my great defense;
I shall not be moved.
3
How long will you threaten a man so that you may kill him?
Like a crumbling wall shall you be and as a tottering fence.
4
For you have thought to cast him down from his excellency;
you delight in lies;
you bless with your mouths, but curse with your hearts.
5
My soul, wait only upon God;
for my salvation is from him.
6
He only is my God and my salvation;
he is my defense;
I shall not be moved.
7
In God is my salvation and my glory;
God is my strength, my refuge, and my hope.
8
Trust in him at all times;
you people, pour out your hearts before him;
God is a refuge for us.
9
Surely all untrue men are like vapor;
when they are placed in the balance, they are found wanting.
10
Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery;
if riches increase, let not your heart rejoice over them.
11
God has said this once;
twice have I heard this;
that power belongs unto God.
12
Also unto thee, O LORD, belongs mercy;
for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
