Psalm 62
Orthodox Jewish Bible
1 (For the one directing. According to Yedutun. Mizmor of Dovid.) Truly my nefesh waiteth silently [in submission] upon Elohim; from Him cometh my Yeshuah (salvation).

2 (3) (3) Truly He is my Tzur and my Yeshuah (salvation); He is my stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

3 (4) (4) How long will ye rush to attack an ish? To thrust at, all of you, as at a leaning kir (wall), and as at a tottering gader (fence).

4 (5) (5) Truly they consult to bring down a person of prominence; they delight in kazav (lie, falsehood, deceptive thing); they make a brocha with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.

5 (6) (6) Truly in Elohim wait silently [in submission], my nefesh, for my tikvah (hope) is from Him.

6 (7) (7) Truly He is my Tzur and my Yeshuah (salvation); He is my stronghold; I shall not be shaken.

7 (8) (8) In Elohim is my salvation and my Kavod: the Tzur of my strength, and my refuge, is in Elohim.

8 (9) (9) Trust in Him at all time; ye people, pour out your lev before Him; Elohim is a refuge for us. Selah.

9 (10) (10) Truly Bnei Adam (those of low estate) are hevel (vanity), and Bnei Ish (those who are highborn) are kazav (a lie); they go up in the balances; they are altogether lighter than hevel (vanity).

10 (11) (11) Trust not in oshek (oppression, extortion) and become not vain in gazel (the thing taken as plunder); if riches increase, set not your lev upon them.

11 (12) (12) Elohim hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that oz (strength) belongeth unto Elohim.

12 (13) (13) Also unto Thee, Adonoi, belongeth chesed; for Thou renderest to ish (every man) according to his ma'asim (deeds).
