Psalm 62

Trust in God Alone

For the choir director: according to Jeduthun.(A) A psalm of David.

I am at rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.(B)
He alone is my rock and my salvation,(C)
my stronghold; I will never be shaken.(D)

How long will you threaten a man?
Will all of you attack[a]
as if he were a leaning wall
or a tottering fence?(E)
They only plan to bring him down
from his high position.
They take pleasure in lying;
they bless with their mouths,
but they curse inwardly.(F)Selah

Rest in God alone, my soul,
for my hope comes from him.(G)
He alone is my rock and my salvation,(H)
my stronghold; I will not be shaken.(I)
My salvation and glory depend on God, my strong rock.
My refuge is in God.(J)
Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts before him.
God is our refuge.(K)Selah

Common people are only a vapor;
important people, an illusion.
Together on a scale,
they weigh less than[b] a vapor.(L)
10 Place no trust in oppression
or false hope in robbery.(M)
If wealth increases,
don’t set your heart on it.(N)

11 God has spoken once;
I have heard this twice:
strength belongs to God,(O)
12 and faithful love belongs to you, Lord.
For you repay each according to his works.(P)
