Psalm 62
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

God Is a Refuge for Us

For the choir director. According to [†]Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

1Surely my soul waits in silence for God;

From Him is my salvation.

2Surely He is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

3How long will you assail a man,

That you may murder him, all of you,

Like a leaning wall, like a fence thrust down?

4Surely they have counseled to thrust him down from his high position;

They find pleasure in falsehood;

They bless with [†]their mouth,

But inwardly they curse. [†]Selah.

5Surely wait in silence for God, O my soul,

For my hope is from Him.

6Surely He is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.

7On God my salvation and my glory rest;

The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.

8Trust in Him at all times, O people;

Pour out your heart before Him;

God is a refuge for us. Selah.

9Surely [†]men of low degree are merely vanity and [†]men of rank are a lie;

In the balances they go up;

They are together lighter than a breath of vanity.

10Do not trust in oppression

And do not put vain hope in robbery;

If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.

11[†]Once God has spoken;

[†]Twice I have heard this:

That strength belongs to God;

12And that to You, O Lord, belongs lovingkindness,

For You repay a man according to his work.
