For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.
1Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
2Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I shall never be shaken.
3How long will you assault me?
Would all of you throw me down –
this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
4Surely they intend to topple me
from my lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
but in their hearts they curse.#4The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here and at the end of verse 8.
5Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
6Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I shall not be shaken.
7My salvation and my honour depend on God#7Or / God Most High is my salvation and my honour;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.
9Surely the lowborn are but a breath,
the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
together they are only a breath.
10Do not trust in extortion
or put vain hope in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
do not set your heart on them.
11One thing God has spoken,
two things I have heard:
‘Power belongs to you, God,
12and with you, Lord, is unfailing love’;
and, ‘You reward everyone
according to what they have done.’
