62 I ·find rest [wait quietly] in God; only he can ·save me [give me victory]. 2 He is my rock [61:2] and my ·salvation [victory]. He is my ·defender [fortress]; I will not be ·defeated [shaken].
3 How long will you ·attack [assault] someone? Will all of you ·kill [murder] that person? Who is like a leaning wall, like a fence ·ready to fall [that totters; C the wicked take advantage of the weak]? 4 They are planning to make that person ·fall [totter]. They enjoy telling lies. With their mouths they bless, but in their ·hearts [L innards] they curse. ·Selah[Interlude]
5 I ·find rest [wait quietly] in God; ·only he gives me hope [L for my hope is in him]. 6 He is my rock [61:2] and my ·salvation [victory]. He is my ·defender [fortress]; I will not be ·defeated [shaken]. 7 My ·honor [glory] and ·salvation [victory] come from God. He is my ·mighty [strong] rock and my ·protection [refuge].
8 People, ·trust [have confidence in] God all the time. ·Tell him all your problems [L Pour out your heart before him], because God is our ·protection [refuge]. ·Selah[Interlude]
9 The least of people are only a ·breath [vapor; bubble; vanity], and even the greatest are just a ·lie [delusion]. On the scales, they ·weigh nothing [L go up]; together they are only a ·breath [vapor; bubble; vanity]. 10 Do not ·trust [have confidence] in ·force [oppression; extortion]. Stealing is ·of no use [meaningless]. Even if you gain more riches, don’t ·put your trust in [L set your heart on] them.
11 God has said this once, and I have heard it ·over and over [L twice]: God is strong. 12 The Lord is ·loving [loyal]. You ·reward [repay] people for what they have done [1 Pet. 1:17; Rev. 20:12–13; 22:12].
