Psalms 62

1

TO THE CHOIRMASTER: ACCORDING TO JEDUTHUN. A PSALM OF DAVID. For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.

2

He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

3

How long will all of you attack a man to batter him, like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?

4

They only plan to thrust him down from his high position. They take pleasure in falsehood. They bless with their mouths, but inwardly they curse. Selah

5

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.

6

He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.

7

On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is 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 trust in extortion; set no vain hopes on robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them.

11

Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God,

12

and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love. For you will render to a man according to his work.
