(KJV)Truly my soul waiteth upon God:
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.
They only consult
to cast him down from his excellency:
they delight in lies:
they bless with their mouth,
but they curse inwardly.
My soul, wait thou only upon God;
for my expectation is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation:
he is my defence;
I shall not be moved.
In God is my salvation and my glory:
the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
Trust in him at all times;
ye people, pour out your heart before him:
God is a refuge for us.
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.
Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery:
if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
God hath spoken once;
twice have I heard this;
that power belongeth unto God.
Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy:
for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
