Psalm 62
New American Standard Bible►► 

God Alone a Refuge from Treachery and Oppression.

For the music director; [a]according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

1My soul waits in silence for God alone;

From Him comes my salvation.

2He alone is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I will not be greatly shaken.

3How long will you attack a man,

That you may murder him, all of you,

Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

4They have planned only to thrust him down from his high position;

They delight in falsehood;

They bless with [b]their mouth,

But inwardly they curse. Selah

5My soul, wait in silence for God alone,

For my hope is from Him.

6He alone is my rock and my salvation,

My refuge; I will not be shaken.

7My salvation and my glory rest on God;

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

8Trust in Him at all times, you people;

Pour out your hearts before Him;

God is a refuge for us. Selah

9People of low standing are only breath, and people of rank are a lie;

In the balances they go up.

Together they are lighter than breath.

10Do not trust in oppression,

And do not vainly rely on robbery;

If wealth increases, do not set your heart on it.

11God has spoken [c]once;

[d]Twice I have heard this:

That power belongs to God;

12And faithfulness is Yours, Lord,

For You reward a person according to his work.

[a] PSALM 62Title Cf. 1 Chr 16:41; 25:1; Ps 39 and 77 titles
[b] 4 Lit his
[c] 11 Or one thing
[d] 11 Or These two things I have heard
