Psalm 62

62
My Soul Waits for God Alone
To the choirmaster: according to #See Ps. 39, titleJeduthun. A Psalm of David.
1For God alone #See Ps. 33:20 my soul #[Ps. 37:7]waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 # Ps. 18:2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my #See Ps. 9:9 fortress; #See Ps. 10:6I shall not be greatly shaken.
3How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like #[Isa. 30:13]a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4They only plan to thrust him down from his #Job 13:11 high position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
# See Ps. 28:3 They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah
5For God alone, O #[See ver. 1 above]my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 # [See ver. 2 above] He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7On God rests my #See Ps. 3:8 salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, #See Ps. 14:6my refuge is God.
8 # See Ps. 37:3 Trust in him at all times, O people;
# See Ps. 42:4 pour out your heart before him;
God is #[See ver. 7 above]a refuge for us. Selah
9 # Ps. 39:5; [Isa. 40:17] Those of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate #[Ps. 116:11]are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
# Ps. 39:5; [Isa. 40:17] they are together lighter than a breath.
10Put no trust in extortion;
# See Prov. 1:10-19 set no vain hopes on robbery;
# Luke 12:15; See Ps. 49:6 if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
11 # Job 33:14; 40:5 Once God has spoken;
# Job 33:14; 40:5 twice have I heard this:
that #Rev. 19:1; [Ps. 59:9, 17]power belongs to God,
12and that to you, O Lord, #Ps. 86:5, 15; 103:8; Dan. 9:9 belongs steadfast love.
For you will #See Job 34:11render to a man
according to his work.
