Holman Christian Standard Bible
Trust in God Alone
For the choir director: according to Jeduthun.(A) A Davidic psalm.
3 How long will you threaten a man?
Will all of you attack[a]
as if he were a leaning wall
or a tottering stone fence?(E)
4 They only plan to bring him down
from his high position.
They take pleasure in lying;
they bless with their mouths,
but they curse inwardly.(F)
5 Rest in God alone, my soul,
for my hope comes from Him.(G)
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation,(H)
my stronghold; I will not be shaken.(I)
7 My salvation and glory depend on God, my strong rock.
My refuge is in God.(J)
8 Trust in Him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts before Him.
God is our refuge.(K)
9 Men are only a vapor;
exalted men, an illusion.
Weighed in the scales, they go up;
together they are less than a vapor.(L)
10 Place no trust in oppression,
or false hope in robbery.
If wealth increases,
pay no attention to it.[b](M)
