«For the Chief Musician. To Jeduthan. A Psalm by David
My soul rests in God alone. My salvation is from him.
2
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress - I will never be greatly shaken.
3
How long will you assault a man, would all of you throw him down, Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?
4
They fully intend to throw him down from his lofty place. They delight in lies. They bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
5
My soul, wait in silence for God alone, for my expectation is from him.
6
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress. I will not be shaken.
7
With God is my salvation and my honor. The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8
Trust in him at all times, you people. Pour out your heart before him. God is a refuge for us. Selah.
9
Surely men of low degree are just a breath, and men of high degree are a lie. In the balances they will go up. They are together lighter than a breath.
10
Don't trust in oppression. Don't become vain in robbery. If riches increase, don't set your heart on them.
11
God has spoken once; twice I have heard this, that power belongs to God.
12
Also to you, Lord, belongs loving kindness, for you reward every man according to his work.
