Psalm 62
International Standard VersionBerean Study Bible
1My soul rests quietly only when it looks to God; from him comes my deliverance.1For the choirmaster. According to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. In God alone my soul finds rest; my salvation comes from Him.
2He alone is my rock, my deliverance, and my high tower; nothing will shake me.2He alone is my rock and my salvation. He is my fortress; I will never be shaken.
3How long will you rage against someone? Would you attack him as if he were a leaning wall or a tottering fence?3How long will you threaten a man? Will all of you throw him down like a leaning wall or a tottering fence?
4They plan to cast him down from his exalted position. They delight in lies; their mouth utters blessings, while their heart is cursing. Interlude4They fully intend to cast him down from his lofty perch; they delight in lies; with their mouths they bless, but inwardly they curse. Selah
5My soul, be quiet before God, for from him comes my hope.5Rest in God alone, O my soul, for my hope comes from Him.
6He alone is my rock, my deliverance, and my high tower; nothing will shake me.6He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress; I will not be shaken.
7I rely on God who is my deliverance and my glory; he is my strong rock, and my refuge is in God.7My salvation and my honor rest on God, my strong rock; my refuge is in God.
8People, in every situation put your trust in God; pour out your heart before him; for God is a refuge for us. Interlude8Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is our refuge. Selah
9Human beings are a mere vapor, while people in high positions are not what they appear. When they are placed on the scales, they weigh nothing; even when weighed together, they are less than nothing.9Lowborn men are but a vapor, the exalted but a lie. Weighed on the scale, they go up; together they are but a vapor.
10Don't trust in oppression or put false hope in stealing; if you become wealthy, do not set your heart on it.10Place no trust in extortion, or false hope in stolen goods. If your riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.
11God spoke once, but I heard it twice, "Power belongs to God."11God has spoken once; I have heard this twice: that power belongs to God,
12Also to you, Lord, belongs gracious love, because you reward each person according to what he does.12and loving devotion to You, O Lord. For You will repay each man according to his deeds.
