1 Truly my soul finds rest in God; ¶ my salvation comes from him.
2 Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
3 How long will you assault me? ¶ Would all of you throw me down — ¶ this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
4 Surely they intend to topple me from my lofty place; ¶ they take delight in lies. ¶ With their mouths they bless, ¶ but in their hearts they curse. [^1]
5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God; ¶ my hope comes from him.
6 Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my honor depend on God [^2] ; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, ¶ for God is our refuge.
9 Surely the lowborn are but a breath, ¶ the highborn are but a lie. ¶ If weighed on a balance, they are nothing; ¶ together they are only a breath.
10 Do not trust in extortion or put vain hope in stolen goods; ¶ though your riches increase, ¶ do not set your heart on them.
11 One thing God has spoken, ¶ two things I have heard: ¶ "Power belongs to you, God,
12 and with you, Lord, is unfailing love"; ¶ and, "You reward everyone ¶ according to what they have done."
