King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. 1 My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; 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 imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as 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 cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. 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 My soul, wait thou only upon God; 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: he is my defence; I shall not be moved . 6 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. 7 My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, 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 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether 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 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase , set not your heart upon 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 hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. 11 One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong,
12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: 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.
