Psalm 62

My Soul Waits for God Alone

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

 For God alone  my soul  waits in silence;
   from him comes my salvation.
He only is my rock and my salvation,
   my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. How long will all of you attack a man
   to batter him, like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.
   They take pleasure in falsehood.
They bless with their mouths,
   but inwardly they curse. 

 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
   for my hope is from him.
 He only is my rock and my salvation,
   my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
 On God rests my salvation and my glory;
   my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

 Trust in him at all times, O people;
    pour out your heart before him;
   God is a refuge for us. 

 Those of low estate are but a breath;
   those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
   they are together lighter than a breath.
Put no trust in extortion;
   set no vain hopes on robbery;
   if riches increase, set not your heart on them.

 Once God has spoken;
   twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
 and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.
For you will render to a man
   according to his work.
