Psalm 61

Security in God

For the choir director: on stringed instruments. Of David.

God, hear my cry;
pay attention to my prayer.(A)
I call to you from the ends of the earth
when my heart is without strength.(B)
Lead me to a rock that is high above me,(C)
for you have been a refuge for me,
a strong tower(D) in the face of the enemy.
I will dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge under the shelter of your wings.(E)Selah

God, you have heard my vows;(F)
you have given a heritage
to those who fear your name.(G)
Add days to the king’s life;
may his years span many generations.(H)
May he sit enthroned before God forever.(I)
Appoint faithful love and truth to guard him.(J)
Then I will continually sing of your name,(K)
fulfilling my vows day by day.(L)

Psalm 62

Trust in God Alone

For the choir director: according to Jeduthun.(M) A psalm of David.

I am at rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.(N)
He alone is my rock and my salvation,(O)
my stronghold; I will never be shaken.(P)

How long will you threaten a man?
Will all of you attack[a]
as if he were a leaning wall
or a tottering fence?(Q)
They only plan to bring him down
from his high position.
They take pleasure in lying;
they bless with their mouths,
but they curse inwardly.(R)Selah

Rest in God alone, my soul,
for my hope comes from him.(S)
He alone is my rock and my salvation,(T)
my stronghold; I will not be shaken.(U)
My salvation and glory depend on God, my strong rock.
My refuge is in God.(V)
Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts before him.
God is our refuge.(W)Selah

Common people are only a vapor;
important people, an illusion.
Together on a scale,
they weigh less than[b] a vapor.(X)
10 Place no trust in oppression
or false hope in robbery.(Y)
If wealth increases,
don’t set your heart on it.(Z)

11 God has spoken once;
I have heard this twice:
strength belongs to God,(AA)
12 and faithful love belongs to you, Lord.
For you repay each according to his works.(AB)
