JPS Tanakh 1917
1For the Leader; for Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
2Only for God doth my soul wait in stillness;
From Him cometh my salvation.
3He only is my rock and my salvation,
My high tower, I shall not be greatly moved.
4How long will ye set upon a man,
That ye may slay him, all of you,
As a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
5They only devise to thrust him down from his height, delighting in lies;
They bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly.
6Only for God wait thou in stillness, my soul;
For from Him cometh my hope.
7He only is my rock and my salvation,
My high tower, I shall not be moved.
8Upon God resteth my salvation and my glory;
The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
9Trust in Him at all times, ye people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.
10Men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie;
If they be laid in the balances, they are together lighter than vanity.
11Trust not in oppression,
And put not vain hope in robbery;
If riches increase, set not your heart thereon.
12God hath spoken once,
Twice have I heard this:
That strength belongeth unto God;
13Also unto Thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy;
For Thou renderest to every man according to his work.
