My Soul Waits for God Alone

To the choirmaster: according to (A)Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

62 For God alone (B)my soul (C)waits in silence;
    from him comes my salvation.
(D)He alone is my rock and my salvation,
    my (E)fortress; (F)I shall not be greatly shaken.

How long will all of you attack a man
    to batter him,
    like (G)a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
They only plan to thrust him down from his (H)high position.
    They take pleasure in falsehood.
(I)They bless with their mouths,
    but inwardly they curse. Selah

For God alone, O (J)my soul, wait in silence,
    for my hope is from him.
(K)He only is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my (L)salvation and my glory;
    my mighty rock, (M)my refuge is God.

(N)Trust in him at all times, O people;
    (O)pour out your heart before him;
    God is (P)a refuge for us. Selah

(Q)Those of low estate are but a breath;
    those of high estate (R)are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
    (S)they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no trust in extortion;
    (T)set no vain hopes on robbery;
    (U)if riches increase, set not your heart on them.

11 (V)Once God has spoken;
    (W)twice have I heard this:
that (X)power belongs to God,
12     and that to you, O Lord, (Y)belongs steadfast love.
For you will (Z)render to a man
    according to his work.
