To the Director: According to Jeduthun’s style. A Davidic Psalm.
A Psalm of Trust in God
62 My soul rests quietly only when it looks[a] to God; from him comes my deliverance. 2 He alone is my rock, my deliverance, and my high tower; nothing will shake me.
3 How long will you rage against someone? Would you attack him as if he were a leaning wall or a tottering fence? 4 They plan to cast him down from his exalted position. They delight in lies; their mouth utters blessings, while their heart is cursing. Interlude
5 My soul, be quiet before God, for from him comes my hope. 6 He alone is my rock, my deliverance, and my high tower; nothing will shake me.
7 I rely on God who is my deliverance and my glory; he is my strong rock, and my refuge is in God. 8 People, in every situation put your trust in God;[b] pour out your heart before him; for God is a refuge for us. Interlude
9 Human beings[c] are a mere vapor, while people in high positions[d] are not what they appear. When they are placed on the scales, they weigh nothing; even when weighed together, they are less than nothing. 10 Don’t trust in oppression or put false hope in stealing; if you become wealthy, do not set your heart on it.
11 God spoke once, but I heard it twice, “Power belongs to God.” 12 Also to you, Lord, belongs gracious love, because you reward each person according to what he does.
