THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 62 ©
David variously testifies his quietness in God, against all the consultations and practices of his enemies, and exhorts all believers to do likewise; withdrawing their confidence from men and from all vain, deceitful and unlawful means, and trusting alone in God, Who, according to His Word, alone is powerful, merciful and just.
To the chief Musician, to 1Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.
2TRULY my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be 3greatly moved.
4How long will ye imagine 5mischief against a 6man? ye shall be 7slain all of you: as a 8bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering 9fence.
They only consult to cast 10him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they 11bless with 12their mouth, but they curse 13inwardly. 14Selah.
My soul, 15wait thou only upon God; for my 16expectation is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
In God is my salvation and my glory: the 17rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
Trust in him at all times; ye 18people, pour out your 19heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
Surely men of 20low degree are 21vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid 22in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
Trust not in 23oppression, and become not 24vain in robbery: if 25riches 26increase, set not your heart upon them.
God hath spoken 27once; 28twice have I heard this; that power belongeth 29unto God.
Also unto thee, O Lord, 30belongeth mercy: 31fora thou renderest to every man according to his work.
