For the [music] director, on Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

Confidence in God’s Salvation

1 Only for God my soul [waits in] silence. From him [is] my salvation.
2 Only he [is] my rock and my salvation, my [high] stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.
3 How long will you attack a man? All of you will be shattered like a leaning wall, a tottering fence.
4 They only plan to thrust [him] down from his high position; they are pleased [with] deception. With their mouths they bless, but {inwardly} they curse. Selah
5 Only for God wait in silence, O my soul, because my hope [is] from him.
6 Only he [is] my rock and my salvation, my [high] stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God [rests] my salvation and my glory; God is my strong rock, my refuge.
8 Trust him at all times, O people; pour out before him your heart. God [is] a refuge for us. Selah
9 Only a vapor [are] men of low degree, a deception [are] men of high degree. {Weighed} in a balance, together they [are lighter] than a vapor.
10 Do not trust in extortion, and do not put vain [confidence] in robbery. If wealth increases, do not set [your] heart [on it].
11 Once God has spoken; twice I have heard this: that strength [belongs] to God.
12 And to you [belongs] loyal love, O Lord, because you will render to each according to his work.
