Confidence in God
To the chief Musician, to 1 Chr. 25:1Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.
Truly Ps. 33:20my soul waiteth upon God:
From him cometh my salvation.
He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my Ps. 59:9,17defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
How long will ye imagine mischief against a man?
Ye shall be slain all of you:
Is. 30:13As a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
They only consult to cast him down from his excellency:
They delight in lies:
Ps. 28:3They bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
My soul, wait thou only upon God;
For my expectation is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation:
He is my defence; I shall not be moved.
Jer. 3:23In God is my salvation and my glory:
The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
Trust in him at all times; ye people,
1 Sam. 1:15;Lam. 2:19Pour out your heart before him:
God is a refuge for us. Selah.
Ps. 39:5;Is. 40:17Surely 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.
Trust not in oppression,
And become not vain in robbery:
Luke 12:15If riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
God hath spoken Job 33:14once;
Twice have I heard this;
That power belongeth unto God.
Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy:
For Mat. 16:27thou renderest to every man according to his work.
The thirsty soul
