Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Only in God do I find rest; my salvation comes from him. 1 My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.
2 Only God is my rock and my salvation— my stronghold!—I won't be shaken anymore. 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
3 How long will all of you attack others; how long will you tear them down as if they were leaning walls or broken-down fences? 3 How long will you assault a man? Would all of you throw him down-- this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
4 The only desire of this people is to bring others down low; they delight in deception. With their mouths they bless, but inside they are cursing. Selah 4 They fully intend to topple him from his lofty place; they take delight in lies. With their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse. "Selah"
5 Oh, I must find rest in God only, because my hope comes from him! 5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
6 Only God is my rock and my salvation— my stronghold!—I will not be shaken. 6 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My deliverance and glory depend on God. God is my strong rock. My refuge is in God. 7 My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 All you people: Trust in him at all times! Pour out your hearts before him! God is our refuge! Selah 8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. "Selah"
9 Human beings are nothing but a breath. Human beings are nothing but lies. They don't even register on a scale; taken all together they are lighter than a breath! 9 Lowborn men 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 Don't trust in violence; don't set false hopes in robbery. When wealth bears fruit, don't set your heart on it. 10 Do not trust in extortion or take pride in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them.
11 God has spoken one thing— make it two things— that I myself have heard: that strength belongs to God, 11 One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong,
12 and faithful love comes from you, my Lord— and that you will repay everyone according to their deeds. 12 and that you, O Lord, are loving. Surely you will reward each person according to what he has done.
