How long will ye imagine mischief against every man? Ye shall be slain all the sort of you; yea, as a tottering wall shall ye be, and like a broken hedge. Their device is only how to put him out whom God will exalt; their delight is in lies. They give good words with their mouth, but curse with their heart. Nevertheless, my soul, wait thou still upon God; for my hope is in him. He truly is my strength and my salvation; he is my defence, so that I shall not fall. In God is my health and my glory, the rock of my might; and in God is my trust.
O put your trust in him always, ye people; pour out your hearts before him, for God is our hope. As for the children of men, they are but vanity; the children of men are deceitful. Upon the weights they are altogether lighter than vanity itself. O trust not in wrong and robbery; give not yourselves unto vanity. If riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
God spoke once, and twice I have also heard the same, that power belongeth unto God, and that thou, Lord, art merciful; for thou rewardest every man according to his work.
