The Psalms

God the Only Refuge
To the chief Musician, to Jedu'thun, A Psalm of David.

1  Truly my soul waiteth upon God:
from him cometh my salvation.
2  He only is my rock and my salvation;
he is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.
3  How long will ye imagine mischief against a man?
Ye shall be slain all of you:
as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
4  They only consult to cast him down from his excellency:
they delight in lies:
they bless with their mouth,
but they curse inwardly.
5  My soul, wait thou only upon God;
for my expectation is from him.
6  He only is my rock and my salvation:
he is my defense; I shall not be moved.
7  In God is my salvation and my glory:
the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8  Trust in him at all times;
ye people, pour out your heart before him:
God is a refuge for us.
9  Surely men of low degree are vanity,
and men of high degree are a lie:
to be laid in the balance,
they are altogether lighter than vanity.
10  Trust not in oppression,
and become not vain in robbery:
if riches increase,
set not your heart upon them.
11  God hath spoken once;
twice have I heard this;
that power belongeth unto God.
12  Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy:
for thou renderest to every man according to his work. Job. 34.11 · Jer. 17.10 · Mt. 16.27 · Rom. 2.6 · Rev. 2.23
