Psalm 62 World English Bible

God the Only Refuge

62 1  My soul rests in God alone.
My salvation is from him. 2  He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress—
I will never be greatly shaken. 3  How long will you assault a man,
would all of you throw him down,
Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence? 4  They fully intend to throw him down from his lofty place.
They delight in lies.
They bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah. 5  My soul, wait in silence for God alone,
for my expectation is from him. 6  He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress.
I will not be shaken. 7  With God is my salvation and my honor.
The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

8  Trust in him at all times, you people.
Pour out your heart before him.
God is a refuge for us. Selah. 9  Surely men of low degree are just a breath,
and men of high degree are a lie.
In the balances they will go up.
They are together lighter than a breath. 10  Don’t trust in oppression.
Don’t become vain in robbery.
If riches increase,
don’t set your heart on them. 11  God has spoken once;
twice I have heard this,
that power belongs to God. 12  Also to you, Lord, belongs loving kindness,
for you reward every man according to his work.
