This psalm has nothing in it directly either of prayer or praise, nor does it appear upon what occasion it was penned, nor whether upon any particular occasion, whether mournful or joyful. But in it, I. David with a great deal of pleasure professes his own confidence in God and dependence upon him, and encourages himself to continue waiting on him, Ps. 62:1-7. II. With a great deal of earnestness he excites and encourages others to trust in God likewise, and not in any creature, Ps. 62:8-12. In singing it we should stir up ourselves to wait on God.
