62 1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
62 2 He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress;
I shall not be greatly moved.
62 3 How long will you set upon a man to shatter him, all of you, like a leaning wall, a tottering fence? 62 4 They only plan to thrust him down from his eminence.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah
62 5 For God alone my soul waits in silence,
for my hope is from him.
62 6 He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress;
I shall not be shaken.
62 7 On God rests my deliverance and my honour;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
62 8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah
62 9 Men of low estate are but a breath,
men of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
they are together lighter than a breath.
62 10 Put no confidence in extortion, set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
62 11 Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God;
62 12 and that to you, O Yahweh, belongs steadfast love.
For you requite a man
according to his work.
