New Revised Standard Version Updated Edition
5 For God alone my soul waits in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.(A)
7 On God rests my deliverance and my honor;
my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.(B)
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah(C)
9 Those of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
they are together lighter than a breath.(D)
10 Put no confidence in extortion,
and set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.(E)
11 Once God has spoken;
twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,(F)
12 and steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord.
For you repay to all
according to their work.(G)
