Psalms 62

A Calm Resolve to Wait for the Salvation of God
To the Chief Musician. To #1 Chr. 25:1Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
1Truly #Ps. 33:20my soul silently waits for God;
From Him comes my salvation.
2He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be greatly #Ps. 55:22moved.
3How long will you attack a man?
You shall be slain, all of you,
#Is. 30:13Like a leaning wall and a tottering fence.
4They only consult to cast him down from his high position;
They #Ps. 28:3delight in lies;
They bless with their mouth,
But they curse inwardly.
5My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my expectation is from Him.
6He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be moved.
7#(Jer. 3:23)In God is my salvation and my glory;
The rock of my strength,
And my refuge, is in God.
8Trust in Him at all times, you people;
#1 Sam. 1:15; Ps. 42:4; Lam. 2:19Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.
9#Job 7:16; Ps. 39:5; Is. 40:17Surely men of low degree are a vapor,
Men of high degree are a lie;
If they are weighed on the scales,
They are altogether lighter than vapor.
10Do not trust in oppression,
Nor vainly hope in robbery;
#Job 31:25; (Mark 10:24; Luke 12:15; 1 Tim. 6:10)If riches increase,
Do not set your heart on them.
11God has spoken once,
Twice I have heard this:
That power belongs to God.
12Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy;
For #(Matt. 16:27); Rom. 2:6; 1 Cor. 3:8You render to each one according to his work.
