GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 My soul waits calmly 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 my savior--my stronghold. I cannot be severely shaken. 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 a person? How long will you try to murder him, as though he were a leaning wall or a sagging fence? 3 How long will you assault a man? Would all of you throw him down-- this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
4 hey plan to force him out of his high position. They are happy to lie. They bless with their mouths, but in their hearts 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 Wait calmly for God alone, my soul, 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 my savior--my stronghold. I cannot be shaken. 6 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my glory depend on God. God is the rock of my strength, my refuge. 7 My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 rust him at all times, you people. Pour out your hearts in his presence. 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 Common people are only a whisper in the wind. Important people are only a delusion. When all of them are weighed on a scale, they amount to nothing. They are less than a whisper in the wind. 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 Do not count on extortion [to make you rich]. Do not hope to gain anything through robbery. When riches increase, do not 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 God has spoken once. I have heard it [said] twice: "Power belongs to God. 11 One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong,
12 Mercy belongs to you, O Lord. You reward a person based on what he has done." 12 and that you, O Lord, are loving. Surely you will reward each person according to what he has done.
