Song of Trust in God Alone

To the leader: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

1For God alone my soul waits in silence;

from him comes my salvation.

2He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my fortress; I shall never be shaken.

3How long will you assail a person,

will you batter your victim, all of you,

as you would a leaning wall, a tottering fence?

4Their only plan is to bring down a person of prominence.

They take pleasure in falsehood;

they bless with their mouths,

but inwardly they curse.   Selah

5For God alone my soul waits in silence,

for my hope is from him.

6He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my fortress; I shall not be shaken.

7On God rests my deliverance and my honor;

my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.

8Trust in him at all times, O people;

pour out your heart before him;

God is a refuge for us.   Selah

9Those of low estate are but a breath,

those of high estate are a delusion;

in the balances they go up;

they are together lighter than a breath.

10Put no confidence in extortion,

and set no vain hopes on robbery;

if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.

11Once God has spoken;

twice have I heard this:

that power belongs to God,

12and steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord.

For you repay to all

according to their work.
