Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 For the leader. Set in the style of Y'dutun. A psalm of David: My soul waits in silence for God alone; my salvation comes from him. 1 My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.
2 He alone is my rock and salvation, my stronghold; I won't be greatly moved. 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

5 My soul, wait in silence for God alone, because my hope comes from him. 5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
6 He alone is my rock and salvation, my stronghold; I won't be moved. 6 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My safety and honor rest on God. My strong rock and refuge are in God. 7 My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Trust in him, people, at all times; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. (Selah) 8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. "Selah"
9 Ordinary folks are merely a breath and important people a sham; if you lay them on a balance-scale, they go up both together are lighter than nothing. 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 put your trust in extortion, don't put false hopes in robbery; even if wealth increases, 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 once, I have heard it twice: strength belongs to God. 11 One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong,
12 Also to you, Adonai, belongs grace; for you reward all as their deeds deserve. 12 and that you, O Lord, are loving. Surely you will reward each person according to what he has done.
