My Soul Waits for God Alone
To the choirmaster: according to aJeduthun. A Psalm of David.1 For God alone bmy soul cwaits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 dHe alone is my rock and my salvation,
my efortress; fI shall not be greatly shaken.
3 How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like ga leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4They only plan to thrust him down from his hhigh position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
iThey bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah
5 For God alone, O jmy soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 kHe only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7On God rests my lsalvation and my glory;
my mighty rock mmy refuge is God.
8 nTrust in him at all times, O people;
opour out your heart before him;
God is pa refuge for us. Selah
9 qThose of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate rare a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
sthey are together lighter than a breath.
10Put no trust in extortion;
tset no vain hopes on robbery;
uif riches increase, set not your heart on them.
11 vOnce God has spoken;
wtwice have I heard this:
that xpower belongs to God,
12and that to you, O Lord ybelongs steadfast love.
For you will zrender to a man
according to his work.
