To the Chief Musician upon Jeduthun. A Psalm of David
1 Nevertheless towards God silent is my soul: From him is my salvation.
2 Nevertheless he is my reek and my salvation, My fortress: therefore I shall not be moved greatly.
3 How long will ye continue to lay snares against a man? Ye shall be slain all of you: As an inclining wall shall ye be, and a fence that is shaken.
4 Yet from his elevation they consult to east him down: They delight in falsehood: With their mouth they bless, And in their hearts they curse. Selah.
5 Nevertheless towards God be thou silent O my soul: For from him is my expectation.
6 Nevertheless he only is my rock, and my salvation: My fortress; I shall not fall.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength; my hope is in God.
8 Hope in him at all times, O ye people! Pour out before his face your hearts: God is our hope. Selah.
9 Nevertheless vanity are the sons of Adam; A lie the sons of men: When put all together in a balance they are found lighter than vanity itself.
10 Trust not in oppression and robbery; be not vain: [Upon] riches if they abound set not your heart.
11 Once God hath spoken; Twice this I have heard, |That power belongeth to God;| And to thee, O Lord! belongeth mercy; Truly thou wilt render to every man according to his work.
