¶ To the chanter, for by Iduthun a Psalm of David.My soul waiteth only upon God, for of him cometh my help. He only is my strength, my salvation, my defense, so that I shall not greatly fall. How long will ye imagine mischief against every man? ye shall be slain all of the sort of you: yea as a tottering wall shall ye be, and like a broken hedge. Their device is only how to put him out, their delight is in lies: they give good words with their mouth, but curse with their heart. Selah. Nevertheless, my soul abideth only upon God, for he is my God. He only is my strength, my salvation, my defense: so that I shall not fall. In God is my health, my glory, my might and in God is my trust.
¶ O put your trust in him alway, (ye people) pour out your hearts before him, for God is our hope. Selah. As for men they are but vain, men are deceitful: upon the weights they are altogether lighter than vanity it self. O trust not in wrong or robbery, give not yourselves unto vanity: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them. God spake once a word, twice have I heard the same, that power belongeth unto God. That thou Lord art merciful, and that thou rewardest every man according to his works.
