Psalm 62

God Is a Refuge for Us

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

Surely my soul waits in silence for God;
From Him is my salvation.
Surely He is my rock and my salvation,
My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

How long will you assail a man,
That you may murder him, all of you,
Like a leaning wall, like a fence thrust down?
Surely 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.

Surely wait in silence for God, O my soul,
For my hope is from Him.
Surely He is my rock and my salvation,
My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
On God my salvation and my glory rest;
The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, O people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Surely 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.
Do not trust in oppression
And do not put vain hope in robbery;
If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.

Once God has spoken;
Twice I have heard this:
That strength belongs to God;
And that to You, O Lord, belongs lovingkindness,
For You repay a man according to his work.
