Psalm of the Day Bread of Life 23 January 2021
My Soul Waits for God Alone
1For God alone my soul waits in | silence;*
from him comes my sal- | vation.
2He only is my rock and my salvation, my | fortress;*
I shall not be greatly | shaken.
3How long will all of you attack a man to | batter him,*
like a leaning wall, a | tottering fence?
4They only plan to thrust him down from his high position. They take pleasure in | falsehood.*
They bless with their mouths, but inwardly | they curse.
5For God alone, O my soul, wait in | silence,*
for my hope is | from him.
6He only is my rock and my salvation, my | fortress;*
I shall not be | shaken.
7On God rests my salvation and my | glory;*
my mighty rock, my refuge | is God.
8Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart be- | fore him;*
God is a refuge | for us.
9Those of low estate are but a breath; those of high estate are a de- | lusion;*
in the balances they go up; they are together lighter | than a breath.
10Put no trust in extortion; set no vain hopes on | robbery;*
if riches increase, set not your | heart on them.
11Once God has spoken; twice have I | heard this:*
that power belongs to God,
12and that to you, O Lord, belongs | steadfast love.
For you will render | to a man*
according | to his work.
