1 For God alone my soul in silence waits;*
from him comes my salvation.
2 He truly is my strength and my salvation;*
he is my defense, so that I shall not be greatly shaken.
3 How long will you assail a man to crush him, all of you together,*
as if you were a tottering wall or a broken fence?
4 Their plan is only to bring down the one whom God has exalted;*
their delight is in lies; they bless with their mouth, but curse with their heart.
5 Nevertheless, for God alone my soul in silence waits,*
for my hope is in him.
6 He truly is my strength and my salvation;*
he is my defense, so that I shall not fall.
7 In God is my help and my glory;*
he is the rock of my might, and in him is my trust.
8 O put your trust in him always, you people;*
pour out your hearts before him, for God is our hope.
9 As for the children of men, they are but a breath;*
the children of men are deceitful; upon the scales, they are altogether lighter than a breath.
10 O trust not in oppression; put not vain hopes in robbery;*
if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11 One thing has God spoken; indeed, two things have I heard him say:*
that power belongs to our God;
12 And that you, O Lord, are merciful,*
for you reward everyone according to his work.
