3 How long will you assault me?
Would all of you throw me down—
this leaning wall,(G) this tottering fence?
4 Surely they intend to topple me
from my lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
but in their hearts they curse.[b](H)
5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God;(I)
my hope comes from him.
6 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my honor depend on God[c];
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.(J)
8 Trust in him at all times, you people;(K)
pour out your hearts to him,(L)
for God is our refuge.
9 Surely the lowborn(M) are but a breath,(N)
the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance,(O) they are nothing;
together they are only a breath.
10 Do not trust in extortion(P)
or put vain hope in stolen goods;(Q)
though your riches increase,
do not set your heart on them.(R)
