PSALM 62 God Alone a Refuge from Treachery and Oppression. For the choir director; according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. 62 1My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. 2He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken. 3How long will you assail a man, That you may murder him, all of you, Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence? 4They have counseled only to thrust him down from his high position; They delight in falsehood; They bless with [W]their mouth, But inwardly they curse. [X]Selah. 5My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. 6He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken. 7On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. 8Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah. 9Men of low degree are only vanity and men of rank are a lie; In the balances they go up; They are together lighter than breath. 10Do not trust in oppression And do not [Y]vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them. 11[Z]Once God has spoken; [A]Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God; 12And lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord, For You recompense a man according to his work.
