Psalms 62



1 To the victor, upon jeduthun*; a psalm of David.
2 Only with God is there stillness of my soul;
from Him is my salvation.

2 3 He only is my Rock and my Salvation;
my High·​·Tower; I shall not be greatly moved.

3 4 How long will you assault a man? Will you murder, all of you,
as a leaning wall, a fence thrust·​·aside?

4 5 They only counsel to expel him from his eminence;
they are well·​·pleased in a lie, with the mouth they bless,
but in their inward·​·part they revile him. Selah.

5 6 Only with God may my soul be·​·still;
for from Him is my hope.

6 7 He only is my Rock and my Salvation;
my High·​·Tower; I shall not be moved.

7 8 Upon God is my salvation and my glory;
the Rock of my strength, my protection, is in God.

8 9 Trust in Him at every time, ye people;
spill·​·out your heart before Him;
God is protection for us. Selah.

9 10 Surely the sons of man are vanity; the sons of a man are a lie,
going·​·up into the balances; they are lighter than vanity altogether.

10 11 Trust not in oppression, and become· not ·vain in robbery;
when your belongings are·​·bountiful, set not the heart thereon.

11 12 Once has God spoken, twice have I heard this;
that strength belongs to God;

12 13 and to Thee, O Lord, is mercy;
for Thou repayest to a man according·​·to his deeds.
