1: To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David. Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him [cometh] my salvation. 2: He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [he is] my defense; 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 excellence: 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 defense; 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] to God. 12: Also to thee, O Lord, [belongeth] mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
