New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I find rest in God; only he can save me. 1 My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.
2 He is my rock and my salvation. He is my defender; I will not be defeated. 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

10 Do not trust in force. Stealing is of no use. Even if you gain more riches, don't put your trust in 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 said this, and I have heard it over and over: God is strong. 11 One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong,
12 The Lord is loving. You reward people for what they have done. A psalm of David when he was in the desert of Judah. 12 and that you, O Lord, are loving. Surely you will reward each person according to what he has done.
