Psalm 62 New American Standard Bible

God the Only Refuge

62 1  My soul waits in silence for God only ; From Him is my salvation . 2  He only is my rock and my salvation , My stronghold ; I shall not be greatly shaken . 3  How long will you assail a man , That you may murder him, all of you, Like a leaning wall , like a tottering fence ? 4  They have counseled only to thrust him down from his high position ; They delight in falsehood ; They bless with their mouth , But inwardly they curse . Selah . 5  My soul , wait in silence for God only , For my hope is from Him. 6  He only is my rock and my salvation , My stronghold ; I shall not be shaken . 7  On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength , my refuge is in God .

8  Trust in Him at all times , O people ; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah . 9  Men e of low e degree e are only vanity and men e of rank are a lie ; In the balances they go up; They are together lighter than breath . 10  Do not trust in oppression And do not vainly hope in robbery ; If riches increase , do not set your heart upon them. 11  Once God has spoken ; Twice I have heard this : That power belongs to God ; 12  And lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord , For You recompense a man according to his work .
