Psalm 62

Psalm 62

For the music director, Jeduthun; a psalm of David.

1For God alone I patiently wait;

he is the one who delivers me.

2He alone is my protector and deliverer.

He is my refuge; I will not be upended.

3How long will you threaten a man?

All of you are murderers,

as dangerous as a leaning wall or an unstable fence.

4They spend all their time planning how to bring him down.

They love to use deceit;

they pronounce blessings with their mouths,

but inwardly they utter curses. (Selah)

5Patiently wait for God alone, my soul!

For he is the one who gives me confidence.

6He alone is my protector and deliverer.

He is my refuge; I will not be upended.

7God delivers me and exalts me;

God is my strong protector and my shelter.

8Trust in him at all times, you people!

Pour out your hearts before him!

God is our shelter! (Selah)

9Men are nothing but a mere breath;

human beings are unreliable.

When they are weighed in the scales,

all of them together are lighter than air.

10Do not trust in what you can gain by oppression!

Do not put false confidence in what you can gain by robbery!

If wealth increases, do not become attached to it!

11God has declared one principle;

two principles I have heard:

God is strong,

12and you, O Lord, demonstrate loyal love.

For you repay men for what they do.
