Psalm 62

Trust in God Alone

1 I am at rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from Him. (A) 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, (B)
my stronghold; I will never be shaken. (C)
3 How long will you threaten a man?
Will all of you attack [a]
as if he were a leaning wall
or a tottering stone fence? (D)
4 They only plan to bring him down
from his high position.
They take pleasure in lying;
they bless with their mouths,
but they curse inwardly. (E)

5 Rest in God alone, my soul,
for my hope comes from Him. (F)
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation, (G)
my stronghold; I will not be shaken. (H)
7 My salvation and glory depend on God;
my strong rock, my refuge, is in God. (I)
8 Trust in Him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts before Him.
God is our refuge. (J)

9 Men are only a vapor;
exalted men, an illusion.
On a balance scale, they go up;
together they [weigh] less than a vapor. (K)
10 Place no trust in oppression,
or false hope in robbery.
If wealth increases,
pay no attention to it. (L) [b]
11 God has spoken once;
I have heard this twice:
strength belongs to God, (M)
12 and faithful love belongs to You, LORD.
For You repay each according to his works. (N)
