Psalms 62

Trust in God Alone

1For the choir director: according to Jeduthun. a A Davidic psalm.

I am at rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from Him. b
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation c
my stronghold; I will never be shaken. d

3 How long will you threaten a man?
Will all of you attack
Some Hb mss read you be struck down

as if he were a leaning wall
or a tottering stone fence? f
4 They only plan to bring him down
from his high position.
They take pleasure in lying;
they bless with their mouths,
but they curse inwardly. g ,

My refuge is in God. l
8 Trust in Him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts before Him.
God is our refuge. m ,

men: Literally sons of man or sons of Adam
Men are only a vapor;
exalted men, an illusion.
Weighed in the scales, they go up;
together they are less than a vapor. p
10 Place no trust in oppression,
or false hope in robbery.
If wealth increases,
pay no attention to it.
Lit increases, do not set heart

11 God has spoken once;
I have heard this twice:
strength belongs to God s
12 and faithful love belongs to You, Lord.
For You repay each according to his works. t
