Psalm 62

Psalm 62[a]

For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
    my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

How long will you assault me?
    Would all of you throw me down—
    this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Surely they intend to topple me
    from my lofty place;
    they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
    but in their hearts they curse.[b]

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
    my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God[c];
    he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.

Surely the lowborn are but a breath,
    the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
    together they are only a breath.
10 Do not trust in extortion
    or put vain hope in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
    do not set your heart on them.

11 One thing God has spoken,
    two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,
12     and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;
and, “You reward everyone
    according to what they have done.”

Psalm 62

Psalm 62

For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

It is surely true that I find my rest in God.
    He is the God who saves me.
It is surely true that he is my rock. He is the God who saves me.
    He is like a fort to me. I will always be secure.

How long will you enemies attack me?
    Will all of you throw me down?
I’m like a leaning wall.
    I’m like a fence about to fall.
Surely my enemies only want to pull me down
    from my place of honor.
    They take delight in telling lies.
They bless me with what they say.
    But in their hearts they ask for bad things to happen to me.

Yes, I must find my rest in God.
    He is the God who gives me hope.
It is surely true that he is my rock and the God who saves me.
    He is like a fort to me, so I will always be secure.
I depend on God to save me and to honor me.
    He is my mighty rock and my place of safety.
Trust in him at all times, you people.
    Tell him all your troubles.
    God is our place of safety.

Surely ordinary people are only a breath.
    Important people are not what they seem to be.
If they were weighed on a scale, they wouldn’t amount to anything.
    Together they are only a breath.
10 Don’t trust in money you have taken from others.
    Don’t put false hope in things you have stolen.
Even if your riches grow,
    don’t put your trust in them.

11 God, I have heard you say two things.
    One is that power belongs to you, God.
12     The other is that your love, Lord, never ends.
You will reward everyone
    in keeping with what they have done.
