For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A song of David.
62 I wait patiently for God. Only he can save me. 2 He is my rock, who saves me. He protects me like a strong, walled city. I will not be defeated.
3 How long will you attack me? Will all of you throw me down? I am like a leaning wall, like a fence ready to fall. 4 You are planning to make me fall. You enjoy telling lies about me. With your mouth you bless me. But in your heart you curse me. Selah
5 I wait patiently for God to save me. Only he gives me hope. 6 He is my rock, who saves me. He protects me like a strong, walled city. I will not be defeated. 7 My honor and salvation come from God. He is my mighty rock and my protection.
8 People, trust God all the time. Tell him all your problems. God is our protection. Selah
9 People are only a breath. Even the greatest men are just a lie. On the scales, they weigh nothing. Together they are only a breath. 10 Do not trust in force. Stealing is of no use. Even if you gain more riches, don’t put your trust in them.
11 God has said this, and I have heard it over and over: God, you are strong. 12 Lord, you are loving. You reward a person for what he does.
