Psalms 62

Psalms 62

Unshakable Faith
To the Pure and Shining One
By David, for the one who praises # 62 The inscription includes the name Jeduthun, which means “one who praises.”
1I stand silently to listen for the one I love,
waiting as long as it takes for the Lord to rescue me.
For God alone has become my Savior.
2He alone is my safe place;
his wraparound presence always protects me.
For he is my champion defender;
there’s no risk of failure with God.
So why would I let worry paralyze me,
even when troubles multiply around me?
3But look at these who want me dead,
shouting their vicious threats at me!
The moment they discover my weakness,
they all begin plotting to take me down.
4Liars, hypocrites, with nothing good to say—
all their energies are spent
on moving me from this exalted place.
Pause in his presence
5I am standing in absolute stillness, silent before the one I love,
waiting as long as it takes for him to rescue me.
Only God is my Savior, and he will not fail me.
6For he alone is my safe place.
His wraparound presence always protects me
as my champion defender.
There’s no risk of failure with God!
So why would I let worry paralyze me,
even when troubles multiply around me?
7God’s glory is all around me!
His wraparound presence is all I need,
for the Lord is my Savior, my hero, and my life-giving strength.
8Trust only in God every moment!
Tell him all your troubles and pour out your heart-longings to him.
Believe me when I tell you—he will help you!
Pause in his presence
9Before God all the people of the earth, high or low,
are like smoke that disappears,
like a vapor that quickly vanishes away.
Compared to God they’re nothing but vanity, nothing at all!
10The wealth of the world is nothing to God.
So if your wealth increases, don’t be boastful or
put your trust in your money.
And don’t you think for a moment that
you can get away with stealing by overcharging others
just to get more for yourself!
11God said to me once and for all,
“All the strength and power you need flows from me!”
And again I heard it clearly said,
12“All the love you need is found in me!”
And it’s true that you repay people for what they do.
