International Standard Version
1My soul rests quietly only when it looks to God; from him comes my deliverance.
2He alone is my rock, my deliverance, and my high tower; nothing will shake me.
3How long will you rage against someone? Would you attack him as if he were a leaning wall or a tottering fence?
4They plan to cast him down from his exalted position. They delight in lies; their mouth utters blessings, while their heart is cursing. Interlude
5My soul, be quiet before God, for from him comes my hope.
6He alone is my rock, my deliverance, and my high tower; nothing will shake me.
7I rely on God who is my deliverance and my glory; he is my strong rock, and my refuge is in God.
8People, in every situation put your trust in God; pour out your heart before him; for God is a refuge for us. Interlude
9Human beings are a mere vapor, while people in high positions are not what they appear. When they are placed on the scales, they weigh nothing; even when weighed together, they are less than nothing.
10Don't trust in oppression or put false hope in stealing; if you become wealthy, do not set your heart on it.
11God spoke once, but I heard it twice, "Power belongs to God."
12Also to you, Lord, belongs gracious love, because you reward each person according to what he does.
