Psalm 62

My Soul Waits for God Alone


1For God alone my soul waits in | silence;*

            from him comes my sal- | vation.


2He only is my rock and my salvation, my | fortress;*

            I shall not be greatly | shaken.


3How long will all of you attack a man to | batter him,*

            like a leaning wall, a | tottering fence?


4They only plan to thrust him down from his high position. They take pleasure in | falsehood.*

            They bless with their mouths, but inwardly | they curse.


5For God alone, O my soul, wait in | silence,*

            for my hope is | from him.


6He only is my rock and my salvation, my | fortress;*

            I shall not be | shaken.


7On God rests my salvation and my | glory;*

            my mighty rock, my refuge | is God.


8Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart be- | fore him;*

            God is a refuge | for us.


9Those of low estate are but a breath; those of high estate are a de- | lusion;*

            in the balances they go up; they are together lighter | than a breath.


10Put no trust in extortion; set no vain hopes on | robbery;*

            if riches increase, set not your | heart on them.


11Once God has spoken; twice have I | heard this:*

            that power belongs to God,


            12and that to you, O Lord, belongs | steadfast love.

For you will render | to a man*

            according | to his work.
