Psalm 62

My Soul Waits for God Alone


      1 For God alone my soul waits in silence; 

      from him comes my salvation. 

      2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, 

      my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. 

      3 How long will all of you attack a man 

      to batter him, 

      like a leaning wall, a tottering fence? 

      4 They only plan to thrust him down from his high position. 

      They take pleasure in falsehood. 

      They bless with their mouths, 

      but inwardly they curse. Selah 

      5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, 

      for my hope is from him. 

      6 He only is my rock and my salvation, 

      my fortress; I shall not be shaken. 

      7 On God rests my salvation and my glory; 

      my mighty rock, my refuge is God. 

      8 Trust in him at all times, O people; 

      pour out your heart before him; 

      God is a refuge for us. Selah 

      9 Those of low estate are but a breath; 

      those of high estate are a delusion; 

      in the balances they go up; 

      they are together lighter than a breath. 

      10 Put no trust in extortion; 

      set no vain hopes on robbery; 

      if riches increase, set not your heart on them. 

      11 Once God has spoken; 

      twice have I heard this: 

      that power belongs to God, 

      12 and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love. 

      For you will render to a man 

      according to his work.
