Trust in God Alone
For the choir director: according to Jeduthun. # Ps 39 title A Davidic psalm.
1I am at rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from Him. # Ps 33:20; 37:39
2He alone is my rock and my salvation, # Dt 32:15; 2Sm 22:47
my stronghold; I will never be shaken. # Ps 37:24; 55:22
3How long will you threaten a man?
Will all of you attack # Some Hb mss read you be struck down
as if he were a leaning wall
or a tottering stone fence? # Is 30:13
4They only plan to bring him down
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
6He alone is my rock and my salvation, # Ps 89:26; 95:1
my stronghold; I will not be shaken. # Ps 16:8; 21:7
7My salvation and glory depend on God, my strong rock.
My refuge is in God. # Ps 18:2
8Trust in Him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts before Him.
God is our refuge. # Ps 91:2; 118:8-9Selah
9Men are only a vapor;
exalted men, an illusion.
Weighed in the scales, they go up;
together they are less than a vapor. # Ps 39:5-6,11; Is 40:17
10Place no trust in oppression,
or false hope in robbery.
If wealth increases,
pay no attention to it. # Lit increases, do not set heart # Jb 31:24-25; Mk 4:19; 1Tm 6:10,17-19
11God has spoken once;
I have heard this twice:
strength belongs to God, # Jb 40:5
12and faithful love belongs to You, Lord.
For You repay each according to his works. # Mt 16:27; Rm 2:6; Rv 22:12
