Context
My Soul Rests in God Alone

1Truly my soul waits on God: from him comes my salvation. 2He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved. 3How long will you imagine mischief against a man? you shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall you be, and as a tottering fence. 4They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah. 5My soul, wait you only on God; for my expectation is from him. 6He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defense; I shall not be moved. 7In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. 8Trust in him at all times; you people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. 9Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity. 10Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart on them. 11God has spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongs to God. 12Also to you, O Lord, belongs mercy: for you render to every man according to his work.
