Psalm 62

For the worship leader, Jeduthun. A song of David.

My soul quietly waits for the True God alone;
    my salvation comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my deliverance,
    my citadel high on the hill; I will not be shaken.

How long will you attack a man?
    How long will all of you strive to crush your prey
    when he’s like a leaning fence or a wall on the verge of collapse?
Their only purpose in life is to knock him down from his prominent position;
    they love deceit.
When others are around, they speak a blessing on someone,
    but inwardly they are mumbling a curse.


My soul quietly waits for the True God alone
    because I hope only in Him.
He alone is my rock and deliverance,
    my citadel high on a hill;
    I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my significance depend ultimately on God;
    the core of my strength, my shelter, is in the True God.

Have faith in Him in all circumstances, dear people.
    Open up your heart to Him;
    the True God shelters us in His arms.


Human beings disappear like a breath;
    even people of rank live artificial lives.
Their weight is that of a breath in a balance—nothing.
    Added together, they’re still lighter than air.
10 Do not resort to oppression;
    resist the temptation of ill-gotten gain.
    If you achieve wealth, don’t let your heart get attached.

11 The True God spoke this once,
    and twice I’ve heard:
That You, the True God, hold all power;
12 Your love never fails, O Lord,
    for You pay every person back
    according to his deeds.
