Psalm 62 The Message Bible

God the Only Refuge

62 1  God, the one and only - I'll wait as long as he says. Everything I need comes from him, so why not? 2  He's solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul, An impregnable castle: I'm set for life. 3  How long will you gang up on me? How long will you run with the bullies? There's nothing to you, any of you - rotten floorboards, worm-eaten rafters, 4  Anthills plotting to bring down mountains, far gone in make-believe. You talk a good line, but every "blessing" breathes a curse. 5  God, the one and only - I'll wait as long as he says. Everything I hope for comes from him, so why not? 6  He's solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul, An impregnable castle: I'm set for life. 7  My help and glory are in God

8  So trust him absolutely, people; lay your lives on the line for him. God is a safe place to be. 9  Man as such is smoke, woman as such, a mirage. Put them together, they're nothing; two times nothing is nothing. 10  And a windfall, if it comes - don't make too much of it. 11  God said this once and for all; how many times Have I heard it repeated? "Strength comes Straight from God." 12  Love to you, Lord God! You pay a fair wage for a good day's work!
