  4. How long will you plan destruction to man? You shall be murdered, all of you, as a leaning wall, a tottering fence.
  5. Only because of his loftiness have they plotted to topple him; they delight in lies; with his mouth they bless, but inwardly they curse forever.
  6. Only to God should you hope, my soul, for my hope is from Him.
  7. Only He is my Rock and my salvation; my stronghold, I shall not falter.
  8. Upon God rests my salvation and my honor; [He is] the Rock of my strength, my shelter is in God.
  9. Trust in Him at all times; people, pour out your hearts before Him. God is our shelter forever.
  10. The sons of men are but vanity, and men of distinction are deceitful; were they to be put on a scale, together they would equal vanity.
  11. Do not trust in extortion or put vain hope in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them.
  12. God spoke one thing, I heard two, for God has strength.
  13. And You, O Lord, have kindness, for You repay a man according to his deed.
