Psalm 62

My Soul Waits for God Alone

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

1 For God alone 1my soul 2waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.
2 3He only is my rock and my salvation, my 4fortress; 5I shall not be greatly shaken.
3 How long will all of you attack a man to batter him, like 6a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 They only plan to thrust him down from his 7high position. They take pleasure in falsehood. 8They bless with their mouths, but inwardly they curse. Selah
5 For God alone, O 9my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.
6 10He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my 11salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, 12my refuge is God.
8 13Trust in him at all times, O people; 14pour out your heart before him; God is 15a refuge for us. Selah
9 16Those of low estate are but a breath; those of high estate 17are a delusion; in the balances they go up; 18they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no trust in extortion; 19set no vain hopes on robbery; 20if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
11 21Once God has spoken; 22twice have I heard this: that 23power belongs to God,
12 and that to you, O Lord, 24belongs steadfast love. For you will 25render to a man according to his work.
