Psalm 62
New Living TranslationHebrew Study Bible
1I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him.1לַמְנַצֵּ֥חַ עַֽל־ יְדוּת֗וּן מִזְמ֥וֹר לְדָוִֽד׃ אַ֣ךְ אֶל־ אֱ֭לֹהִים דּֽוּמִיָּ֣ה נַפְשִׁ֑י מִ֝מֶּ֗נּוּ יְשׁוּעָתִֽי׃
2He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.2אַךְ־ ה֣וּא צ֭וּרִי וִֽישׁוּעָתִ֑י מִ֝שְׂגַּבִּ֗י לֹא־ אֶמּ֥וֹט רַבָּֽה׃
3So many enemies against one man— all of them trying to kill me. To them I’m just a broken-down wall or a tottering fence.3עַד־ אָ֤נָה ׀ תְּהֽוֹתְת֣וּ עַל‪‬ אִישׁ֮ תְּרָצְּח֪וּ כֻ֫לְּכֶ֥ם כְּקִ֥יר נָט֑וּי גָּ֝דֵ֗ר הַדְּחוּיָֽה׃
4They plan to topple me from my high position. They delight in telling lies about me. They praise me to my face but curse me in their hearts. Interlude4אַ֤ךְ מִשְּׂאֵת֨וֹ ׀ יָעֲצ֣וּ לְהַדִּיחַ֮ יִרְצ֪וּ כָ֫זָ֥ב בְּפִ֥יו יְבָרֵ֑כוּ וּ֝בְקִרְבָּ֗ם יְקַלְלוּ־ סֶֽלָה׃
5Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him.5אַ֣ךְ לֵ֭אלֹהִים דּ֣וֹמִּי נַפְשִׁ֑י כִּי־ מִ֝מֶּ֗נּוּ תִּקְוָתִֽי׃
6He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.6אַךְ־ ה֣וּא צ֭וּרִי וִֽישׁוּעָתִ֑י מִ֝שְׂגַּבִּ֗י לֹ֣א אֶמּֽוֹט׃
7My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.7עַל־ אֱ֭לֹהִים יִשְׁעִ֣י וּכְבוֹדִ֑י צוּר־ עֻזִּ֥י מַ֝חְסִ֗י בֵּֽאלֹהִֽים׃
8O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. Interlude8בִּטְח֘וּ ב֤וֹ בְכָל־ עֵ֨ת ׀ עָ֗ם שִׁפְכֽוּ־ לְפָנָ֥יו לְבַבְכֶ֑ם אֱלֹהִ֖ים מַחֲסֶה־ לָּ֣נוּ סֶֽלָה׃
9Common people are as worthless as a puff of wind, and the powerful are not what they appear to be. If you weigh them on the scales, together they are lighter than a breath of air.9אַ֤ךְ ׀ הֶ֥בֶל בְּנֵֽי־ אָדָם֮ כָּזָ֪ב בְּנֵ֫י אִ֥ישׁ בְּמֹאזְנַ֥יִם לַעֲל֑וֹת הֵ֝֗מָּה מֵהֶ֥בֶל יָֽחַד׃
10Don’t make your living by extortion or put your hope in stealing. And if your wealth increases, don’t make it the center of your life.10אַל־ תִּבְטְח֣וּ בְעֹשֶׁק֮ וּבְגָזֵ֪ל אַל־ תֶּ֫הְבָּ֥לוּ חַ֤יִל ׀ כִּֽי־ יָנ֑וּב אַל־ תָּשִׁ֥יתוּ לֵֽב׃
11God has spoken plainly, and I have heard it many times: Power, O God, belongs to you;11אַחַ֤ת ׀ דִּבֶּ֬ר אֱלֹהִ֗ים שְׁתַּֽיִם־ ז֥וּ שָׁמָ֑עְתִּי כִּ֥י עֹ֝֗ז לֵאלֹהִֽים׃
12unfailing love, O Lord, is yours. Surely you repay all people according to what they have done.12וּלְךָֽ־ אֲדֹנָ֥י חָ֑סֶד כִּֽי־ אַתָּ֨ה תְשַׁלֵּ֖ם לְאִ֣ישׁ כְּֽמַעֲשֵֽׂהוּ׃
