Yes, my soul, find rest in God;(A)
    my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God[a];
    he is my mighty rock, my refuge.(B)
Trust in him at all times, you people;(C)
    pour out your hearts to him,(D)
    for God is our refuge.

Surely the lowborn(E) are but a breath,(F)
    the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance,(G) they are nothing;
    together they are only a breath.
10 Do not trust in extortion(H)
    or put vain hope in stolen goods;(I)
though your riches increase,
    do not set your heart on them.(J)

11 One thing God has spoken,
    two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,(K)
12     and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;(L)
and, “You reward everyone
    according to what they have done.”(M)
