I depend on God alone;
I put my hope in him.
He alone protects and saves me;
he is my defender,
and I shall never be defeated.
My salvation and honor depend on God;
he is my strong protector;
he is my shelter.
Trust in God at all times, my people.
Tell him all your troubles,
for he is our refuge.
Human beings are all like a puff of breath;
great and small alike are worthless.
Put them on the scales, and they weigh nothing;
they are lighter than a mere breath.
Don't put your trust in violence;
don't hope to gain anything by robbery;
even if your riches increase,
don't depend on them.
More than once I have heard God say
that power belongs to him
and that his love is constant.
You yourself, O Lord, reward everyone according to their deeds.
