Amplified Bible

Psalm 62

God Alone a Refuge from Treachery and Oppression.

To the Chief Musician; to Jeduthun [Ethan, the noted musician, founder of an official musical family]. A Psalm of David.

1For God alone my soul waits in silence;
From Him comes my salvation.

He alone is my rock and my salvation,
My defense and my strong tower; I will not be shaken or disheartened.


How long will you attack a man
So that you may murder him, all of you,
Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

They consult only to throw him down from his high position [to dishonor him];
They delight in lies.
They bless with [the words of] their mouths,
But inwardly they curse. Selah.


For God alone my soul waits in silence and quietly submits to Him,
For my hope is from Him.

He only is my rock and my salvation;
My fortress and my defense, I will not be shaken or discouraged.

On God my salvation and my glory rest;
He is my rock of [unyielding] strength, my refuge is in God.

Trust [confidently] in Him at all times, O people;
Pour out your heart before Him.
God is a refuge for us. Selah.


Men of low degree are only a breath (emptiness), and men of [high] rank are a lie (delusion).
In the balances they go up [because they have no measurable weight or value];
They are together lighter than a breath.
10 
Do not trust in oppression,
And do not vainly hope in robbery;
If riches increase, do not set your heart on them.

11 
God has spoken once,
Twice I have heard this:
That power belongs to God.
12 
Also to You, O Lord, belong lovingkindness and compassion,
For You compensate every man according to [the value of] his work.

诗篇 62

唯上帝是拯救

大卫作的训诲诗,交给乐长,照耶杜顿的做法。

1我的心默默等候上帝,
祂是我的拯救者。
唯有祂才是我的磐石,
我的拯救,我的堡垒,
我必不致动摇。
我就像一面摇摇欲坠的墙壁、行将倒塌的篱笆,
你们要攻击我、置我于死地到何时呢?
你们千方百计把我从高位拉下。
你们善于说谎,嘴上祝福,
心却咒诅。(细拉)

我的心啊!要默默等候上帝,
因为我的盼望从祂而来。
唯有祂才是我的磐石,
我的拯救,我的堡垒,
我必不致动摇。
上帝是我的拯救者,
是我的荣耀,
祂是我的坚固磐石,
是我的避难所。
众百姓啊,
要时刻信靠上帝,
向祂倾心吐意,
因为祂是我们的避难所。(细拉)

卑贱人不过是一丝气息,
尊贵人不过是一场幻影,
把他们放在天平上一秤,
比空气还轻,毫无分量。
10 不要敲诈勒索,
不要妄想靠偷盗发财,
即使财富增多,也不要倚靠它。
11 上帝再三告诉我:
祂拥有权能,
12 充满慈爱。
主啊,你必照各人的行为来施行赏罚。
