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.

詩篇 62

唯上帝是拯救

大衛作的訓誨詩,交給樂長,照耶杜頓的做法。

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,我的堡壘,
我必不致動搖。
我就像一面搖搖欲墜的牆壁、行將倒塌的籬笆,
你們要攻擊我、置我於死地到何時呢?
你們千方百計把我從高位拉下。
你們善於說謊,嘴上祝福,
心卻咒詛。(細拉)

我的心啊!要默默等候上帝,
因為我的盼望從祂而來。
唯有祂才是我的磐石,
我的拯救,我的堡壘,
我必不致動搖。
上帝是我的拯救者,
是我的榮耀,
祂是我的堅固磐石,
是我的避難所。
眾百姓啊,
要時刻信靠上帝,
向祂傾心吐意,
因為祂是我們的避難所。(細拉)

卑賤人不過是一絲氣息,
尊貴人不過是一場幻影,
把他們放在天平上一秤,
比空氣還輕,毫無分量。
10 不要敲詐勒索,
不要妄想靠偷盜發財,
即使財富增多,也不要倚靠它。
11 上帝再三告訴我:
祂擁有權能,
12 充滿慈愛。
主啊,你必照各人的行為來施行賞罰。
