Psalm 62 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
1 My soul waits calmly for God alone. My salvation comes from him. 2 He alone is my rock and my savior--my stronghold. I cannot be severely shaken. 3 How long will all of you attack a person? How long will you try to murder him, as though he were a leaning wall or a sagging fence? 4 hey plan to force him out of his high position. They are happy to lie. They bless with their mouths, but in their hearts they curse. Selah 5 Wait calmly for God alone, my soul, because my hope comes from him. 6 He alone is my rock and my savior--my stronghold. I cannot be shaken. 7 My salvation and my glory depend on God. God is the rock of my strength, my refuge. 8 rust him at all times, you people. Pour out your hearts in his presence. God is our refuge. Selah 9 Common people are only a whisper in the wind. Important people are only a delusion. When all of them are weighed on a scale, they amount to nothing. They are less than a whisper in the wind. 10 Do not count on extortion [to make you rich]. Do not hope to gain anything through robbery. When riches increase, do not depend on them. 11 God has spoken once. I have heard it [said] twice: "Power belongs to God. 12 Mercy belongs to you, O Lord. You reward a person based on what he has done."
