Psalms 62

For the Leader; for Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. Only for God doth my soul wait in stillness; from Him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, my high tower, I shall not be greatly moved. How long will ye set upon a man, that ye may slay him, all of you, as a leaning wall, a tottering fence? They only devise to thrust him down from his height, delighting in lies; they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah Only for God wait thou in stillness, my soul; for from Him cometh my hope. He only is my rock and my salvation, my high tower, I shall not be moved. Upon God resteth my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

Trust in Him at all times, ye people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah 10 Men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie; if they be laid in the balances, they are together lighter than vanity. 11 Trust not in oppression, and put not vain hope in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart thereon. 12 God hath spoken once, twice have I heard this: that strength belongeth unto God; 13 Also unto Thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy; for Thou renderest to every man according to his work.
