Psalm 62
New International Version

Psalm 62a

For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

1Truly my soul finds rest in God;

my salvation comes from him.

2Truly he is my rock and my salvation;

he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

3How long will you assault me?

Would all of you throw me down—

this leaning wall, this tottering fence?

4Surely they intend to topple me

from my lofty place;

they take delight in lies.

With their mouths they bless,

but in their hearts they curse.b

5Yes, my soul, find rest in God;

my hope comes from him.

6Truly he is my rock and my salvation;

he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

7My salvation and my honor depend on Godc ;

he is my mighty rock, my refuge.

8Trust in him at all times, you people;

pour out your hearts to him,

for God is our refuge.

9Surely the lowborn are but a breath,

the highborn are but a lie.

If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;

together they are only a breath.

10Do not trust in extortion

or put vain hope in stolen goods;

though your riches increase,

do not set your heart on them.

11One thing God has spoken,

two things I have heard:

“Power belongs to you, God,

12and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;

and, “You reward everyone

according to what they have done.”
