David professing his confidence in God discourageth his enemies. In the same confidence he encourageth the godly. No trust is to be put in worldly things. Power and mercy belong to God.
0 To the chief Musician, to 1Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.
1 Trulya my 1soul bwaiteth upon God: 2from him cometh my salvation.
2 He 1only is my rock and my salvation; he is my adefence; I 2shall not be greatly moved.
3 How 1long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: 2as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
4 They 1only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse ainwardly. Selah.
5 My soul, 1wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
6 He 1only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; 2I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and 1my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8 1Trust in him at all times; ye people, 2pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
9 Surely 1men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a 2lie: to be laid in the balance, they are aaltogether lighter than vanity.
10 Trust 1not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: 2if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11 God 1hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that apower belongeth unto God.
12 Also unto thee, O Lord, 1belongeth mercy: for 2thou renderest to every man according to his work.
