Psalm 62

Song of Trust in God Alone

To the leader: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

1

For God alone my soul waits in silence;

from him comes my salvation.

2

He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my fortress; I shall never be shaken.

 

3

How long will you assail a person,

will you batter your victim, all of you,

as you would a leaning wall, a tottering fence?

4

Their only plan is to bring down a person of prominence.

They take pleasure in falsehood;

they bless with their mouths,

but inwardly they curse.Selah

 

5

For God alone my soul waits in silence,

for my hope is from him.

6

He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my fortress; I shall not be shaken.

7

On God rests my deliverance and my honor;

my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.

 

8

Trust in him at all times, O people;

pour out your heart before him;

God is a refuge for us.Selah

 

9

Those of low estate are but a breath,

those of high estate are a delusion;

in the balances they go up;

they are together lighter than a breath.

10

Put no confidence in extortion,

and set no vain hopes on robbery;

if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.

 

11

Once God has spoken;

twice have I heard this:

that power belongs to God,

12

and steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord.

For you repay to all

according to their work.
