New American Standard Bible
God Alone a Refuge from Treachery and Oppression.
For the music director; [a]according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
3 How long will you attack a man,
That you may murder him, all of you,
Like a (E)leaning wall, like a tottering fence?
4 They have planned only to thrust him down from his high position;
They (F)delight in falsehood;
They (G)bless with [b]their mouth,
But inwardly they curse. Selah
5 My soul, (H)wait in silence for God alone,
For my hope is from Him.
6 He alone is (I)my rock and my salvation,
My refuge; I will not be shaken.
7 My (J)salvation and my glory rest on God;
The rock of my strength, my (K)refuge is in God.
8 (L)Trust in Him at all times, you people;
(M)Pour out your hearts before Him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah
9 People of (N)low standing are only (O)breath, and people of rank are a (P)lie;
In the (Q)balances they go up.
Together they are lighter than breath.
10 (R)Do not trust in oppression,
And do not vainly rely on (S)robbery;
If wealth increases, (T)do not set your heart on it.
