King James Bible
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
American Standard Version
It is better to take refuge in Jehovah Than to put confidence in princes.
Young's Literal Translation
Better to take refuge in Jehovah, Than to trust in princes.
Psalm 118:9 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
In princes - Men of high estate are generally proud, vainglorious, self-confident, and rash: it is better to trust in God than in them. Often they cannot deliver, and often they will not when they can. However, in the concerns of our salvation, and in matters which belong to Providence, they can do nothing.
