Psalm 62 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Psalm 62

My Soul Rests in God Alone

Heading

For the choir director. According to Jeduthun.[a] A psalm by David.

God Alone Is My Refuge

My soul rests quietly in God alone.
My salvation is from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress.
I will not be disturbed.
How long will you threaten a man?
Do all of you want to murder him,
    like a leaning wall, like a fence to be pushed down?
Yes, they plan to push him down from his lofty place.
They are delighted with deceit.
With their mouths they bless,
but inside they curse. Interlude

God Alone Is My Refuge

My soul, rest quietly in God alone,
for my hope comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress.
I will not be disturbed.
My salvation and my honor depend on God, my strong rock.
My refuge is in God.
Trust in him at all times, you people.
Pour out your hearts before him.
God is a refuge for us. Interlude

Strength in God, Not in Man

Yes, the sons of Adam are only a breath.
The sons of man are a delusion.
On a scale they weigh nothing.
They are nothing but air.[b]
10 Do not trust in extortion.
Do not put empty confidence in stolen goods.
If your wealth grows, do not set your heart on it.
11 One thing God has spoken,
two things that I have heard:
    that God has strength
12     and that you, Lord, have mercy.
Surely you will repay each person
    according to what he has done.
