New American Standard Bible
God Alone a Refuge from Treachery and Oppression.
For the choir director; [a]according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
3 How long will you assail a man,
That you may murder him, all of you,
Like a (E)leaning wall, like a tottering fence?
4 They have counseled only to thrust him down from his high position;
They (F)delight in falsehood;
They (G)bless with [b]their mouth,
But inwardly they curse. [c]Selah.
5 My soul, (H)wait in silence for God only,
For my hope is from Him.
6 He only is (I)my rock and my salvation,
My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God my (J)salvation and my glory rest;
The rock of my strength, my (K)refuge is in God.
8 (L)Trust in Him at all times, O people;
(M)Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah.
9 Men of (N)low degree are only (O)vanity and men of rank are a (P)lie;
In the (Q)balances they go up;
They are together lighter than breath.
10 (R)Do not trust in oppression
And do not [d]vainly hope in (S)robbery;
If riches increase, (T)do not set your heart upon them.
