My Soul Waits for God Alone
To the choirmaster: according to a Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.1 For God alone b my soul c waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 d He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my e fortress; f I shall not be greatly shaken.
3 How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like g a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 They only plan to thrust him down from his h high position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
i They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah
5 For God alone, O j my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 k He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my l salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock m my refuge is God.
8 n Trust in him at all times, O people;
o pour out your heart before him;
God is p a refuge for us. Selah
9 q Those of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate r are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
s they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no trust in extortion;
t set no vain hopes on robbery;
u if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
11 v Once God has spoken;
w twice have I heard this:
that x power belongs to God,
12 and that to you, O Lord y belongs steadfast love.
For you will z render to a man
according to his work.
