Psalms - Chapter 62
1 To the Chief Musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. Truly my soul silently [waits] for God; From Him [comes] my salvation.
Salvation Only in God
2 He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [He is] my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.
3 How long will you attack a man? You shall be slain, all of you, Like a leaning wall and a tottering fence.
4 They only consult to cast [him] down from his high position; They delight in lies; They bless with their mouth, But they curse inwardly. Selah
5 My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation [is] from Him.
6 He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [He is] my defense; I shall not be moved.
7 In God [is] my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, [And] my refuge, [is] in God.
8 Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God [is] a refuge for us. Selah
9 Surely men of low degree [are] a vapor, Men of high degree [are] a lie; If they are weighed on the scales, They [are] altogether [lighter] than vapor.
Because He is Strong and Just
10 Do not trust in oppression, Nor vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, Do not set [your] heart [on them.]
11 God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power [belongs] to God.
12 Also to You, O Lord, [belongs] mercy; For You render to each one according to his work.
