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.

Salmos 62

Al director musical. Para Jedutún. Salmo de David.

1Solo en Dios halla descanso mi alma;
    de él viene mi salvación.
Solo él es mi roca y mi salvación;
    él es mi protector.
    ¡Jamás habré de caer!

¿Hasta cuándo atacarán todos ustedes
    a un hombre para derribarlo?
Es como un muro inclinado,
    ¡como una cerca a punto de derrumbarse!
Solo quieren derribarlo
    de su lugar de preeminencia.
Se complacen en la mentira:
    bendicen con la boca,
    pero maldicen con el corazón. Selah

Solo en Dios halla descanso mi alma;
    de él viene mi esperanza.
Solo él es mi roca y mi salvación;
    él es mi protector
    y no habré de caer.
Dios es mi salvación y mi gloria;
    es la roca que me fortalece;
    ¡mi refugio está en Dios!
Confía siempre en él, pueblo mío;
    ábrele tu corazón cuando estés ante él.
    ¡Dios es nuestro refugio! Selah

Una quimera es la gente de humilde cuna,
    y una mentira la gente de alta alcurnia;
si se les pone juntos en la balanza,
    todos ellos no pesan nada.

10 No confíen en la extorsión
    ni se hagan ilusiones con sus rapiñas;
y aunque se multipliquen sus riquezas,
    no pongan el corazón en ellas.

11 Una cosa ha dicho Dios,
    y dos veces lo he escuchado:
Que tú, oh Dios, eres poderoso;
12     que tú, Señor, eres todo amor;
que tú pagarás a cada uno
    según lo que merezcan sus obras.
