62PsalmsPassage
1 For the choirmaster . . . Jeduthun. Psalm Of David.

In God alone there is rest for my soul, from him comes my safety;

           
2 he alone is my rock, my safety, my stronghold so that I stand unshaken.            
3 How much longer will you set on a victim, all together, intent on murder, like a rampart already leaning over, a wall already damaged?            
4 Trickery is their only plan, deception their only pleasure, with lies on their lips they pronounce a blessing, with a curse in their hearts.

Pause

           
5 Rest in God alone, my soul! He is the source of my hope.            
6 He alone is my rock, my safety, my stronghold, so that I stand unwavering.            
7 In God is my safety and my glory, the rock of my strength.

In God is my refuge;

           
8 trust in him, you people, at all times. Pour out your hearts to him, God is a refuge for us.

Pause

           
9 Ordinary people are a mere puff of wind, important people a delusion; set both on the scales together, and they are lighter than a puff of wind.            
10 Put no trust in extortion, no empty hopes in robbery; however much wealth may multiply, do not set your heart on it.            
11 Once God has spoken, twice have I heard this: Strength belongs to God,            
12 to you, Lord, faithful love; and you repay everyone as their deeds deserve.
