To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.1 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. ▼
▼ Truly: or, Only, ▼
▼ waiteth: Heb. is silent2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. ▼
▼ defence: Heb. high place3 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. 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. ▼
▼ inwardly: Heb. in their inward parts5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. 6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. 7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. 8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. 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. ▼
▼ altogether: or, alike10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them. 11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. ▼
▼ power: or, strength12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
