Psalms 62
Psalm 62
For the music leader. According to Jeduthun. A psalm of David.
1Only in God do I#62.1 Or my soul find rest;
my salvation comes from him.
2Only God is my rock and my salvation—
my stronghold!—I won’t be shaken anymore.
3How long will all of you attack others;
how long will you tear them down#62.3 Correction; MT kill them
as if they were leaning walls or broken-down fences?
4The only desire of this people
is to bring others down low;
they delight in deception.
With their mouths they bless,
but inside they are cursing. Selah
5Oh, I#62.5 Or my soul must find rest in God only,
because my hope comes from him!
6Only God is my rock and my salvation—
my stronghold!—I will not be shaken.
7My deliverance and glory depend on God.
God is my strong rock.
My refuge is in God.
8All you people: Trust in him at all times!
Pour out your hearts before him!
God is our refuge! Selah
9Human beings are nothing but a breath.
Human beings are nothing but lies.
They don’t even register on a scale;
taken all together they are lighter than a breath!
10Don’t trust in violence;
don’t set false hopes in robbery.
When wealth bears fruit,
don’t set your heart on it.
11God has spoken one thing—
make it two things—
that I myself have heard:
that strength belongs to God,
12and faithful love comes from you, my Lord—
and that you will repay
everyone according to their deeds.
