A David Psalm 62 1God, the one and only— I’ll wait as long as he says. Everything I need comes from him, so why not? 2He’s solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul, An impregnable castle: I’m set for life. 3How long will you gang up on me? How long will you run with the bullies? There’s nothing to you, any of you— rotten floorboards, worm–eaten rafters, 4Anthills plotting to bring down mountains, far gone in make–believe. You talk a good line, but every “blessing” breathes a curse. 5God, the one and only— I’ll wait as long as he says. Everything I hope for comes from him, so why not? 6He’s solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul, An impregnable castle: I’m set for life. 7My help and glory are in God —granite–strength and safe–harbor–God— 8So trust him absolutely, people; lay your lives on the line for him. God is a safe place to be. 9Man as such is smoke, woman as such, a mirage. Put them together, they’re nothing; two times nothing is nothing. 10And a windfall, if it comes— don’t make too much of it. 11God said this once and for all; how many times Have I heard it repeated? “Strength comes Straight from God.” 12Love to you, Lord God! You pay a fair wage for a good day’s work!
