1 To the overseer, to Jeduthun: chanting to David. Surely my soul was silent to God: from him my salvation. 2 Surely he my rock and my salvation, my height; I shall not be greatly moved.
3 How long will ye set upon a man? ye will kill all of you: as a wall inclining, a wall thrust down. 4 Surely they counseled to thrust down his lifting up: they will delight in falsehood: with their mouth they will praise, and in their inward parts they will curse. Silence.
5 Only, my soul be thou silent to God; for from him my hope. 6 Surely he my rock and my salvation: my height; I shall not be moved. 7 Upon God my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, my refuge in God. 8 Trust in him in all time; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Silence.
9 Surely the sons of man vanity, the sons of man falsehood: to be brought up into the balances, they together of vanity. 10 Ye shall not trust in oppression, ye shall not become vain in plunder: if wealth shall increase ye shall not set the heart
11 Once God spake; twice I heard this; that strength is to God. 12 And to thee, O Jehovah, mercy: for thou wilt recompense to each according to his work.
