Psalm 62

New International Version

1 Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.2 Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I shall never be shaken.3 How long will you assault me? Would all of you throw me down – this leaning wall, this tottering fence?4 Surely they intend to topple me from my lofty place; they take delight in lies. With their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse.[1]5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.6 Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I shall not be shaken.7 My salvation and my honour depend on God[2]; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.9 Surely the lowborn are but a breath, the highborn are but a lie. If weighed on a balance, they are nothing; together they are only a breath.10 Do not trust in extortion or put vain hope in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them.11 One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard: ‘Power belongs to you, God,12 and with you, Lord, is unfailing love’; and, ‘You reward everyone according to what they have done.’
