Psalm 62 Revised Standard Version

God the Only Refuge

62 1  To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. 2  He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly moved. 3  How long will you set upon a man to shatter him, all of you, like a leaning wall, a tottering fence? 4  They only plan to thrust him down from his eminence. They take pleasure in falsehood. They bless with their mouths, but inwardly they curse. [Selah] 5  For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him. 6  He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. 7  On God rests my deliverance and my honor; my mighty rock, my refuge is 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 of low estate are but a breath, men of high estate are a delusion; in the balances they go up; they are together lighter than a breath. 10  Put no confidence in extortion, set no vain hopes on robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them. 11  Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God; 12  and that to thee, O Lord, belongs steadfast love. For thou dost requite a man according to his work.
