Psalms 62:1-12

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • True salvation comes from God

    • “I wait silently for God” (1, 5)

    • ‘Pour out your hearts before God’ (8)

    • Humans a mere breath (9)

    • Do not trust in wealth (10)

To the director; of Je·duʹthun.* A melody of David. 62  Indeed, I wait* silently for God. My salvation comes from him.+   Indeed, he is my rock and my salvation, my secure refuge;*+ I will never be greatly shaken.+   How long will you assault a man in order to murder him?+ All of you are as dangerous as a leaning wall, a stone wall ready to collapse.*   For they consult together to topple him from his high position;* They take pleasure in lying. With their mouth they bless, but inside they are cursing.+ (Selah)   Indeed, I wait silently* for God+ Because my hope comes from him.+   Indeed, he is my rock and my salvation, my secure refuge; I will never be shaken.+   Upon God depends my salvation and my glory. My strong rock, my refuge, is God.+   Trust in him at all times, O people. Pour out your hearts before him.+ God is a refuge for us.+ (Selah)   The sons of men are a mere breath, The sons of mankind are a delusion.+ When laid together on the scales, they are lighter than a mere breath.+ 10  Do not trust in extortion Or put false hopes in robbery. If your wealth increases, do not set your heart on it.+ 11  Once God has spoken, twice I have heard this: That strength belongs to God.+ 12  Also loyal love is yours, O Jehovah,+ For you repay each one according to his deeds.+
