Psalm 62:1-12

(Of the Director over Jeduthun; a psalm of David’s.) 62  My soul is attentive just to God;from him my salvation comes. 2  He, just he, is my rock and my salvation,my fastness; I shall not be greatly stirred. 3  How long will you be bullying a man, murdering?all of you are like a wall out of plumb, a fence knocked in. 4  They are just planning to knock off from his dignity;they take satisfaction in lying;With their mouths they blessand inwardly they are cursing. (Selah) 5  Be attentive just to God, my soul,because from him my hope comes. 6  He, just he, is my rock and my salvation,my fastness; I shall not be stirred. 7  On God rest my salvation and my glory;my citadel rock, my refuge, is in God. 8  Trust to him every time, people,pour out your hearts before him;God is a refuge for us. (Selah) 9  Human beings are just air, sons of man a lie;they are quicker to fly up in the balance together than a whiff of air. 10  Do not rely on sponging nor build air-castles on stolen goods; when wealth is fruitful do not be impressed. 11  One thing God has spoken,two that I have heard, 12  That strength is God’s, and yours, Lord, is friendship;that you will repay each man in accordance with his deeds.
