62:1 For the Leader; for Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

62:2 Only for God doth my soul wait in stillness; from Him cometh my salvation.

62:3 He only is my rock and my salvation, my high tower, I shall not be greatly moved.

62:4 How long will ye set upon a man, that ye may slay him, all of you, as a leaning wall, a tottering fence?

62:5 They only devise to thrust him down from his height, delighting in lies; they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah

62:6 Only for God wait thou in stillness, my soul; for from Him cometh my hope.

62:7 He only is my rock and my salvation, my high tower, I shall not be moved.

62:8 Upon God resteth my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

62:9 Trust in Him at all times, ye people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah

62:10 Men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie; if they be laid in the balances, they are together lighter than vanity.

62:11 Trust not in oppression, and put not vain hope in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart thereon.

62:12 God hath spoken once, twice have I heard this: that strength belongeth unto God;

62:13 Also unto Thee, O L-rd, belongeth mercy; for Thou renderest to every man according to his work.
