Psalm 62

My Soul Waits for God Alone

1 Truly a my soul silently waits for God;
From Him comes my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my 1 defense;
I shall not be greatly b moved. 2

3 How long will you attack a man?
You shall be slain, all of you,
c Like a leaning wall and a tottering fence.
4 They only consult to cast him down from his high position;
They d delight in lies;
They bless with their mouth,
But they curse inwardly. Selah

5 My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my 3 expectation is from Him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be 4 moved.
7 e In God is my salvation and my glory;
The rock of my strength,
And my refuge, is in God.

8 Trust in Him at all times, you people;
f Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah

9 g Surely men of low degree are 5 a vapor,
Men of high degree are a lie;
If they are weighed on the scales,
They are altogether lighter than vapor.
10 Do not trust in oppression,
Nor vainly hope in robbery;
h 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, belongs mercy;
For i You 6 render to each one according to his work.
