1Truly my nefesh waiteth silently [in submission] upon Elohim; from Him cometh my Yeshuah (salvation). 2(3) Truly He is my Tzur and my Yeshuah (salvation); He is my stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken. 3(4) How long will ye rush to attack an ish? To thrust at, all of you, as at a leaning kir (wall), and as at a tottering gader (fence). 4(5) Truly they consult to bring down a person of prominence; they delight in kazav (lie, falsehood, deceptive thing); they make a berakhah with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah. 5(6) Truly in Elohim wait silently [in submission], my nefesh, for my tikvah (hope) is from Him. 6(7) Truly He is my Tzur and my Yeshuah (salvation); He is my stronghold; I shall not be shaken. 7(8) In Elohim is my salvation and my Kavod: the Tzur of my strength, and my refuge, is in Elohim. 8(9) Trust in Him at all time; ye people, pour out your lev before Him; Elohim is a refuge for us. Selah. 9(10) Truly Bnei Adam (those of low estate) are hevel (vanity), and Bnei Ish (those who are highborn) are kazav (a lie); they go up in the balances; they are altogether lighter than hevel (vanity). 10(11) Trust not in oshek (oppression, extortion) and become not vain in gazel (the thing taken as plunder); if riches increase, set not your lev upon them. 11(12) Elohim hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that oz (strength) belongeth unto Elohim. 12(13) Also unto Thee, Adonoi, belongeth chesed; for Thou renderest to ish (every man) according to his ma'asim (deeds).
