1: (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.
