Psalm 62
Young's Literal Translation

Waiting on God

1To the Overseer, for Jeduthun. — A Psalm of David. Only — toward God [is] my soul silent, From Him [is] my salvation.

2Only — He [is] my rock, and my salvation, My tower, I am not much moved.

3Till when do ye devise mischief against a man? Ye are destroyed all of you, As a wall inclined, a hedge that is cast down.

4Only — from his excellency They have consulted to drive away, They enjoy a lie, with their mouth they bless, And with their heart revile. Selah.

5Only — for God, be silent, O my soul, For from Him [is] my hope.

6Only — He [is] my rock and my salvation, My tower, I am not moved.

7On God [is] my salvation, and my honour, The rock of my strength, my refuge [is] in God.

8Trust in Him at all times, O people, Pour forth before Him your heart, God [is] a refuge for us. Selah.

9Only — vanity [are] the low, a lie the high. In balances to go up they than vanity [are] lighter.

10Trust not in oppression, And in robbery become not vain, Wealth — when it increaseth — set not the heart.

11Once hath God spoken, twice I heard this, That ‘strength [is] with God.’

12And with Thee, O Lord, [is] kindness, For Thou dost recompense to each, According to his work!
