(A psalm by David for Jeduthun, the music leader.)
God Is Powerful and Kind
62 Only God can save me, and I calmly wait for[a] him. 2 God alone is the mighty rock[b] that keeps me safe and the fortress where I am secure.
3 I feel like a shaky fence or a sagging wall. How long will all of you attack and assault me? 4 You want to bring me down from my place of honor. You love to tell lies, and when your words are kind, hatred hides in your heart.
5 Only God gives inward peace, and I depend on him. 6 God alone is the mighty rock that keeps me safe, and he is the fortress where I feel secure. 7 God saves me and honors me. He is that mighty rock where I find safety.
8 Trust God, my friends, and always tell him each one of your concerns. God is our place of safety.
9 We humans are only a breath; none of us are truly great. All of us together weigh less than a puff of air. 10 Don’t trust in violence or depend on dishonesty or rely on great wealth.
11 I heard God say two things: “I am powerful, 12 and I am very kind.” The Lord rewards each of us according to what we do.
