Psalm 62

English Standard Version

To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. (Ps 33:20; Ps 37:7; Ps 39:1) He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. (Ps 9:9; Ps 10:6; Ps 18:2) How long will all of you attack a man to batter him, like a leaning wall, a tottering fence? (Isa 30:13) 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. (Job 13:11; Ps 28:3) For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. (Ps 62:1) He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. (Ps 62:2) On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. (Ps 3:8; Ps 14:6) Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. (Ps 37:3; Ps 42:4; Ps 62:7) 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. (Ps 39:5; Ps 116:11; Isa 40:17) 10 Put no trust in extortion; set no vain hopes on robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them. (Ps 49:6; Pr 1:10; Lu 12:15) 11 Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God, (Job 33:14; Job 40:5; Ps 59:9; Ps 59:17; Re 19:1) 12 and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love. For you will render to a man according to his work. (Job 34:11; Ps 86:5; Ps 86:15; Ps 103:8; Da 9:9)
