Psalm 62:11-12 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 Do not trust in extortion;
    in plunder put no empty hope.
On wealth that increases,
    do not set your heart.
12 [a]One thing God has said;
    two things I have heard:
Strength belongs to God;


  1. 62:12 One thing…two things: parallelism of numbers for the sake of variation, a common device in Semitic poetry. One should not literally add up the numbers, cf. Am 1:3; Prv 6:16–19; 30:15, 18, 21.
