Psalms 62

Waiting on God

1 For the choirmaster. According to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. In God alone my soul finds rest; my salvation comes from Him. 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation; [He is] my fortress, I will never be shaken. 3 How long will you threaten a man? Will all of you throw him down like a leaning wall or a tottering fence? 4 They fully intend to topple him from his lofty perch; they delight in lies; with their mouths they bless, but inwardly they curse. Selah 5 Rest in God alone, O my soul, for my hope comes from Him. 6 He alone is my rock and my salvation; [He is] my fortress, I will not be shaken. 7 My salvation and my honor rest on God, my strong rock; my refuge is in God. 8 Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is our refuge.

9 Lowborn men [are] but a vapor; the exalted but a lie. Weighed on the scale, they are pushed up; together they are but a breath. 10 Place no trust in extortion, or false hope in stolen goods. If your riches increase, do not set your heart [upon them] . 11 God has spoken once; I have heard this twice: that power belongs to God, 12 and loving devotion to You, O Lord. For You will repay each man according to his deeds.
