I depend on God alone; I put my hope in him.
He alone protects and saves me; he is my defender, and I shall never be defeated.
My salvation and honor depend on God; he is my strong protector; he is my shelter.
Trust in God at all times, my people. Tell him all your troubles, for he is our refuge.
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.
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.
More than once I have heard God say that power belongs to him
and that his love is constant. 1 You yourself, O Lord, reward everyone according to their deeds.
