my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 62:3 - How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?

They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah

set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
