Psalm 62

Psalms: 62

Hope in God Alone.  Psalm 62(v61)

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

1For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress;
I shall not be greatly moved.

3How long will you set upon a man to shatter him, all of you, like a leaning wall, a tottering fence? 4They only plan to thrust him down from his eminence.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah

5For God alone my soul waits in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress;
I shall not be shaken.
7On God rests my deliverance and my honor;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

8Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah
9Men of low estate are but a breath,
men of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
they are together lighter than a breath.
10Put no confidence in extortion, set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, set not your heart on them.

11Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God;
12and that to thee, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.
For thou dost requite a man
according to his work.
