Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I wait patiently for God to save me; I depend on him alone. 1 My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.
2 He alone protects and saves me; he is my defender, and I shall never be defeated. 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
3 How much longer will all of you attack someone who is no stronger than a broken-down fence? 3 How long will you assault a man? Would all of you throw him down-- this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
4 You only want to bring him down from his place of honor; you take pleasure in lies. You speak words of blessing, but in your heart you curse him. 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 I depend on God alone; I put my hope in him. 5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
6 He alone protects and saves me; he is my defender, and I shall never be defeated. 6 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and honor depend on God; he is my strong protector; he is my shelter. 7 My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Trust in God at all times, my people. Tell him all your troubles, for he is our refuge. 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 all like a puff of breath; great and small alike are worthless. Put them on the scales, and they weigh nothing; they are lighter than a mere 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 put your trust in violence; don't hope to gain anything by robbery; even if your riches increase, don't depend on them. 10 Do not trust in extortion or take pride in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them.
11 More than once I have heard God say that power belongs to him 11 One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong,
12 and that his love is constant. You yourself, O Lord, reward 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.
