For the worship leader, Jeduthun. A song of David.
1 My soul quietly waits for the True God alone; my salvation comes from Him. 2 He alone is my rock and my deliverance, my citadel high on the hill; I will not be shaken.
3 How long will you attack a man? How long will all of you strive to crush your prey when he’s like a leaning fence or a wall on the verge of collapse? 4 Their only purpose in life is to knock him down from his prominent position; they love deceit. When others are around, they speak a blessing on someone, but inwardly they are mumbling a curse.
5 My soul quietly waits for the True God alone because I hope only in Him. 6 He alone is my rock and deliverance, my citadel high on a hill; I will not be shaken. 7 My salvation and my significance depend ultimately on God; the core of my strength, my shelter, is in the True God.
8 Have faith in Him in all circumstances, dear people. Open up your heart to Him; the True God shelters us in His arms.
9 Human beings disappear like a breath; even people of rank live artificial lives. Their weight is that of a breath in a balance—nothing. Added together, they’re still lighter than air. 10 Do not resort to oppression; resist the temptation of ill-gotten gain. If you achieve wealth, don’t let your heart get attached.
11 The True God spoke this once, and twice I’ve heard: That You, the True God, hold all power; 12 Your love never fails, O Lord, for You pay every person back according to his deeds.
