For the choir director; †according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
1 aMy soul waits in silence for God only;
From Him bis my salvation.
2 He only is my arock and my salvation,
My bstronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.
That you may murder him, all of you,
Like a aleaning wall, like a tottering fence?
They adelight in falsehood;
But inwardly they curse.
5 My soul, await in silence for God only,
For my hope is from Him.
6 He only is amy rock and my salvation,
My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God my asalvation and my glory rest;
The rock of my strength, my brefuge is in God.
8 aTrust in Him at all times, O people;
bPour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.
In the dbalances they go up;
They are together lighter than breath.
10 aDo not trust in oppression
If riches increase, cdo not set your heart upon them.
2Twice I have heard this:
That bpower belongs to God;
12 And lovingkindness ais Yours, O Lord,
For You brecompense a man according to his work.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
