For the Chief Musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm by David.

1My soul rests in God alone.

My salvation [yeshuah-ti

is from him.

2He alone is my rock, my salvation, and my fortress.

I will never be greatly shaken.

3How long will you assault a man?

Would all of you throw him down,

like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

4They fully intend to throw him down from his lofty place.

They delight in lies.

They bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly.


5My soul, wait in silence for God alone,

for my expectation is from him.

6He alone is my rock and my salvation [yeshuah-ti

, my fortress.

I will not be shaken.

7My salvation and my honour is with God.

The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

8Trust in him at all times, you people.

Pour out your heart before him.

God is a refuge for us.


9Surely men of low degree are just a breath,

and men of high degree are a lie.

In the balances they will go up.

They are together lighter than a breath.

10Don’t trust in oppression.

Don’t become vain in robbery.

If riches increase,

don’t set your heart on them.

11God has spoken once;

twice I have heard this,

that power belongs to God.

12Also to you, Lord, belongs loving kindness,

for you reward every man according to his work.
