Psalm 62New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Trust in God Alone
1 For the leader; ‘al Jeduthun. A psalm of David.
2 My soul rests in God alone,
from whom comes my salvation.
3 God alone is my rock and salvation,
my fortress; I shall never fall.
4 How long will you set yourself against a man?
You shall all be destroyed,
Like a sagging wall
or a tumbled down fence!
5 Even highly placed people
plot to overthrow him.
They delight in lies;
they bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse.
6 My soul, be at rest in God alone,
from whom comes my hope.
7 God alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not fall.
8 My deliverance and honor are with God,
my strong rock;
my refuge is with God.
9 Trust God at all times, my people!
Pour out your hearts to God our refuge!
10 Mortals are a mere breath,
the sons of man but an illusion;
On a balance they rise;
together they weigh nothing.
11 Do not trust in extortion;
in plunder put no empty hope.
On wealth that increases,
do not set your heart.
12 One thing God has said;
two things I have heard:
Strength belongs to God;
13 so too, my Lord, does mercy,
For you repay each man
according to his deeds.
