PSALM 62[U] Trust in God Alone 62 1For the leader; ‘al Jeduthun.[V] A psalm of David. I 2My soul rests in God alone, from whom comes my salvation. 3God alone is my rock and salvation, my fortress; I shall never fall. 4How long will you set yourself against a man? You shall all be destroyed, Like a sagging wall or a tumbled down fence! 5Even highly placed people plot to overthrow him. They delight in lies; they bless with their mouths, but inwardly they curse.Selah II 6My soul, be at rest in God alone, from whom comes my hope. 7God alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not fall. 8My deliverance and honor are with God, my strong rock; my refuge is with God. 9Trust God at all times, my people! Pour out your hearts to God our refuge!Selah III 10Mortals are a mere breath, the sons of man but an illusion; On a balance they rise;[W] together they weigh nothing. 11Do not trust in extortion; in plunder put no empty hope. On wealth that increases, do not set your heart. 12[X]One thing God has said; two things I have heard: Strength belongs to God; 13so too, my Lord, does mercy, For you repay each man according to his deeds.
