My Rock and My Salvation
1For the music director, on Jeduthun. A psalm of David.
2My soul, wait in stillness, only for God— from Him comes my salvation.
3He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress—I will never be moved.
4How long will all of you assault a man, to crush him, like a leaning wall, a fence to be torn down?
5They only plot to topple him from his rank. Delighting in falsehood, they bless with their mouth, but inwardly they curse. Selah
6My soul, wait in stillness, only for God— for from Him comes my expectation.
7He alone is my rock and my salvation, my strong tower—I will not be moved.
8On God, my salvation and my glory is the rock of my strength. My refuge is in God.
9Trust in Him at all times, you people. Pour out your heart in His presence. God is our refuge. Selah
10Sons of Adam are a vapor, sons of man are an illusion. In balanced scales they go up— altogether they are less than a breath.
11Do not trust in extortion, and do not put vain hope in plunder. Though these things increase riches, do not set your heart on them.
12Once God has spoken, twice I have heard this: might belongs to God.
13Also Yours, O Lord, is lovingkindness. For You reward a man for his work.
