Chapter 62

1

<To the chief music-maker. After Jeduthun. A Psalm. Of David.>\

2

\62:1\My soul, put all your faith in God; for from him comes my salvation.

3

\62:2\He only is my Rock and my salvation; he is my high tower; I will not be greatly moved.

4

\62:3\How long will you go on designing evil against a man? running against him as against a broken wall, which is on the point of falling?

5

\62:4\Their only thought is to put him down from his place of honour; their delight is in deceit: blessing is in their mouths but cursing in their hearts. (Selah.)

6

\62:5\My soul, put all your faith in God; for from him comes my hope.

7

\62:6\He only is my Rock and my salvation; he is my high tower; I will not be greatly moved.

8

\62:7\In God is my salvation, and my glory; the Rock of my strength, and my safe place.

9

\62:8\Have faith in him at all times, you people; let your hearts go flowing out before him: God is our safe place. (Selah.)

10

\62:9\Truly men of low birth are nothing, and men of high position are not what they seem; if they are put in the scales together they are less than a breath.

11

\62:10\Have no faith in the rewards of evil-doing, or in profits wrongly made: if your wealth is increased, do not put your hopes on it.

12

\62:11\Once has God said, twice has it come to my ears, that power is God's:

13

\62:12\And mercy, O Lord, is yours, for you give to every man the reward of his work.
