Psalm 62

For the music leader. According to Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

1 Only in God do I find rest; my salvation comes from him.
2 Only God is my rock and my salvation— my stronghold!—I won't be shaken anymore.
3 How long will all of you attack others; how long will you tear them down as if they were leaning walls or broken-down fences?
4 The only desire of this people is to bring others down low; they delight in deception. With their mouths they bless, but inside they are cursing. Selah
5 Oh, I must find rest in God only, because my hope comes from him!
6 Only God is my rock and my salvation— my stronghold!—I will not be shaken.
7 My deliverance and glory depend on God. God is my strong rock. My refuge is in God.
8 All you people: Trust in him at all times! Pour out your hearts before him! God is our refuge! Selah
9 Human beings are nothing but a breath. Human beings are nothing but lies. They don't even register on a scale; taken all together they are lighter than a breath!
10 Don't trust in violence; don't set false hopes in robbery. When wealth bears fruit, don't set your heart on it.
11 God has spoken one thing— make it two things— that I myself have heard: that strength belongs to God,
12 and faithful love comes from you, my Lord— and that you will repay everyone according to their deeds.
