Psalms 62

My Soul Waits for God Alone

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

1 For God alone b  my soul c  waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 d  He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my e  fortress; f  I shall not be greatly shaken.
3 How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like g  a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4They only plan to thrust him down from his h  high position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
i  They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse.  Selah
5 For God alone, O j  my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 k  He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7On God rests my l  salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock m  my refuge is God.
8 n  Trust in him at all times, O people;
o  pour out your heart before him;
God is p  a refuge for us.  Selah
9 q  Those of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate r  are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
s  they are together lighter than a breath.
10Put no trust in extortion;
t  set no vain hopes on robbery;
u  if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
11 v  Once God has spoken;
w  twice have I heard this:
that x  power belongs to God,
12and that to you, O Lord y  belongs steadfast love.
For you will z  render to a man
according to his work.
