1. [To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.] Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him {cometh} my salvation. {Truly: or, Only} {waiteth: Heb. is silent}

2. He only {is} my rock and my salvation; {he is} my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. {defence: Heb. high place}

3. How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall {shall ye be, and as} a tottering fence.

4. They only consult to cast {him} down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah. {inwardly: Heb. in their inward parts}

5. My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation {is} from him.

6. He only {is} my rock and my salvation: {he is} my defence; I shall not be moved.

7. In God {is} my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, {and} my refuge, {is} in God.

8. Trust in him at all times; {ye} people, pour out your heart before him: God {is} a refuge for us. Selah.

9. Surely men of low degree {are} vanity, {and} men of high degree {are} a lie: to be laid in the balance, they {are} altogether {lighter} than vanity. {altogether: or, alike}

10. Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart {upon them}.

11. God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power {belongeth} unto God. {power: or, strength}
