Psalm 62 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

My Rock and My Salvation

Psalm 62

For the music director, on Jeduthun. A psalm of David.
My soul, wait in stillness, only for God—
from Him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress—I will never be moved.
How long will all of you assault a man,
to crush him, like a leaning wall,
    a fence to be torn down?
They only plot to topple him from his rank.
Delighting in falsehood, they bless with their mouth,
but inwardly they curse. Selah

My soul, wait in stillness, only for God—
for from Him comes my expectation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my strong tower—I will not be moved.
On God, my salvation and my glory is the rock of my strength.
My refuge is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, you people.
Pour out your heart in His presence.
God is our refuge. Selah

10 Sons of Adam are a vapor,
    sons of man are an illusion.
In balanced scales they go up—
    altogether they are less than a breath.
11 Do not trust in extortion,
    and do not put vain hope in plunder.
Though these things increase riches,
    do not set your heart on them.
12 Once God has spoken,
twice I have heard this:
might belongs to God.
13 Also Yours, O Lord, is lovingkindness.
For You reward a man for his work.[a]

Psalm 62 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 62[a]

For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
    my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

How long will you assault me?
    Would all of you throw me down—
    this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Surely they intend to topple me
    from my lofty place;
    they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
    but in their hearts they curse.[b]

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
    my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God[c];
    he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.

Surely the lowborn are but a breath,
    the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
    together they are only a breath.
10 Do not trust in extortion
    or put vain hope in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
    do not set your heart on them.

11 One thing God has spoken,
    two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,
12     and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;
and, “You reward everyone
    according to what they have done.”

  3. Psalm 62:7 Or / God Most High is my salvation and my honor
