1 To the chief musician, upon Jeduthun, a psalm of David. Only in God my soul trusted in silence: from him cometh my salvation.
2 Only he is my rock and my salvation; he is my defense: I shall not be greatly moved.
3 How long will ye devise mischief against a man? will ye all assault him murderously, as though he were a falling wall, a tottering fence?
4 Yea, from his height do they take counsel to cast him down; they delight in lies: with their mouth do they bless, but inwardly do they curse. Selah.
5 Yea, in God hope in silence, my soul; for from him is my expectation.
6 Only he is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence: I shall not be moved.
7 With God are my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength and my protection are in God.
8 Trust in him at all times, O ye people; pour out before him your heart: God is a protection for us. Selah.
9 Verily nought are the sons of common men, a lie the sons of the great; they must rise in the balance; they are altogether lighter than nought.
10 Do not put your trust in defrauding, and be not rendered vain through robbery: if riches flourish, set not your heart upon them.
11 Once hath God spoken; yea, twice what I have heard: that strength belongeth unto God.
12 And unto thee, O Lord, belongeth kindness; for thou wilt recompense every man according to his works.
