For the Chief Musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm by David.

1 My soul rests in God alone.

My salvation [yeshuah-ti] is from him.

2 He alone is my rock, my salvation, and 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 [yeshuah-ti], my fortress.

I will not be shaken.

7 My salvation and my honor is with God.

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.
