Trust in God Alone

1For the leader; ‘al Jeduthun.*

A psalm of David.

I

2My soul rests in God alone, i 63, 2–3. 63, 6–7: Pss 18, 3; 31, 3–4; 42, 10; 118, 8; 146, 3 . from whom comes my salvation. 3God alone is my rock and salvation, my secure height; I shall never fall. 4How long will you set upon people, all of you beating them down, As though they were a sagging fence or a battered wall? 5Even from my place on high they plot to dislodge me. They delight in lies; they bless with their mouths, but inwardly they curse. j Pss 12, 3; 28, 3; 55, 22; Prv 26, 24–25 .   Selah

II

6My soul, be at rest in God alone, from whom comes my hope. 7God alone is my rock and my salvation, my secure height; I shall not fall. 8My safety and glory are with God, k Ps 3, 3; Is 26, 4; 60, 19 . my strong rock and refuge. 9Trust God at all times, my people! Pour out your hearts to God our refuge!   Selah

III

10Mortals are a mere breath, the powerful but an illusion; l Pss 39, 6–7; 144, 4; Jb 7, 16; WIs 2, 5 . On a balance they rise;* together they are lighter than air. 11Do not trust in extortion; in plunder put no empty hope. Though wealth increase, do not set your heart upon it. m Jb 31, 25; Eccl 5, 9; Jer 17, 11; Mt 6, 19–21. 6, 24 . 12One thing God has said; two things* I have heard: n Jb 40, 5 . Power belongs to God; 13so too, Lord, does kindness, And you render to each of us according to our deeds. o Pss 28, 4; 31, 24; 2 Sm 3, 39; Jb 34, 11; Jer 17, 10; Mt 16, 27; Rom 2, 6; 2 Tm 4, 14 .
