To the Chief Musician upon Jeduthun. A Psalm of David

1 Nevertheless towards God silent is my soul: From him is my salvation.

2 Nevertheless he is my reek and my salvation, My fortress: therefore I shall not be moved greatly.

3 How long will ye continue to lay snares against a man? Ye shall be slain all of you: As an inclining wall shall ye be, and a fence that is shaken.

4 Yet from his elevation they consult to east him down: They delight in falsehood: With their mouth they bless, And in their hearts they curse. Selah.

5 Nevertheless towards God be thou silent O my soul: For from him is my expectation.

6 Nevertheless he only is my rock, and my salvation: My fortress; I shall not fall.

7 In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength; my hope is in God.

8 Hope in him at all times, O ye people! Pour out before his face your hearts: God is our hope. Selah.

9 Nevertheless vanity are the sons of Adam; A lie the sons of men: When put all together in a balance they are found lighter than vanity itself. 336336     The free translation of the French version is here adopted. The literal rendering of the Hebrew text is, “In the scales in going up they [are lighter] than vanity together.” To this Calvin strictly adheres in his Latin version.

10 Trust not in oppression and robbery; be not vain: [Upon] riches if they abound set not your heart.

11 Once God hath spoken; Twice this I have heard, “That power belongeth to God;” And to thee, O Lord! belongeth mercy; Truly thou wilt render to every man according to his work.
