my stronghold; I will never be shaken.#Ps 37:24; 55:22
3How long will you threaten a man?
Will all of you attack#62:3 Some Hb mss read you be struck down
as if he were a leaning wall
or a tottering fence?#Is 30:13

from his high position.
They take pleasure in lying;
they bless with their mouths,
but they curse inwardly.#Ps 4:2; 55:21Selah
5Rest in God alone, my soul,
for my hope comes from him.#Ps 71:5

pour out your hearts before him.
God is our refuge.#Ps 91:2; 118:8-9Selah

important people, an illusion.
Together on a scale,
they weigh less than#62:9 Lit they go up more than a vapor.#Ps 39:5-6,11; Is 40:17

or false hope in robbery.
If wealth increases,
don’t set your heart on it.#Jb 31:24-25; Mk 4:19; 1Tm 6:10,17-19

I have heard this twice:
strength belongs to God,#Jb 40:5
