The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {To the chief Musician. On Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.} Upon God alone doth my soul rest peacefully; from him is my salvation. 1 My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation; my high fortress: I shall not be greatly moved. 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
3 How long will ye assail a man; will ye [seek], all of you, to break him down as a bowing wall or a tottering fence? 3 How long will you assault a man? Would all of you throw him down-- this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
4 They only consult to thrust [him] down from his excellency; they delight in lies; they bless with their mouth, but in their inward part they curse. 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 Upon God alone, O my soul, rest peacefully; for my expectation is from him. 5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation; my high fortress: I shall not be moved. 6 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 With God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. 7 My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Confide in him at all times, ye people; pour out your heart 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 Men of low degree are only vanity; men of high degree, a lie: laid in the balance, they go up together [lighter] than vanity. 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 Put not confidence in oppression, and become not vain in robbery; if wealth increase, set not your heart upon 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 Once hath God spoken, twice have I heard this, that strength [belongeth] unto God. 11 One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong,
12 And unto thee, O Lord, [belongeth] loving-kindness; for *thou* renderest to every man according to his work. 12 and that you, O Lord, are loving. Surely you will reward each person according to what he has done.
