Psalm 62



Trust In God Alone

1 My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation.

1 {To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.} Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.

1 I am at rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him.

1 My soul rests quietly only when it looks to God; from him comes my deliverance.

1 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation.

2 He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will never be shaken.

2 He alone is my rock, my deliverance, and my high tower; nothing will shake me.

2 He only is my Rock and my Salvation, my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be greatly moved.

3 How long will you assail a man, That you may murder him, all of you, Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.

3 How long will you threaten a man? Will all of you attack as if he were a leaning wall or a tottering stone fence?

3 How long will you rage against someone? Would you attack him as if he were a leaning wall or a tottering fence?

3 How long will you set upon a man that you may slay him, all of you, like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

4 They have counseled only to thrust him down from his high position; They delight in falsehood; They bless with their mouth, But inwardly they curse. Selah.

4 They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.

4 They only plan to bring him down from his high position. They take pleasure in lying; they bless with their mouths, but they curse inwardly. Selah

4 They plan to cast him down from his exalted position. They delight in lies; their mouth utters blessings, while their heart is cursing. Interlude

4 They only consult to cast him down from his height [to dishonor him]; they delight in lies. They bless with their mouths, but they curse inwardly. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

5 My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him.

5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

5 Rest in God alone, my soul, for my hope comes from Him.

5 My soul, be quiet before God, for from him comes my hope.

5 My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation are from Him.

6 He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.

6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

6 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be shaken.

6 He alone is my rock, my deliverance, and my high tower; nothing will shake me.

6 He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved.

7 On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.

7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

7 My salvation and glory depend on God; my strong rock, my refuge, is in God.

7 I rely on God who is my deliverance and my glory; he is my strong rock, and my refuge is in God.

7 With God rests my salvation and my glory; He is my Rock of unyielding strength and impenetrable hardness, and my refuge is in God!

8 Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.

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

8 Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is our refuge. Selah

8 People, in every situation put your trust in God; pour out your heart before him; for God is a refuge for us. Interlude

8 Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us (a fortress and a high tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

9 Men of low degree are only vanity and men of rank are a lie; In the balances they go up; They are together lighter than breath.

9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.

9 Men are only a vapor; exalted men, an illusion. On a balance scale, they go up; together they [weigh] less than a vapor.

9 Human 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.

9 Men of low degree [in the social scale] are emptiness (futility, a breath) and men of high degree [in the same scale] are a lie and a delusion. In the balances they go up; they are together lighter than a breath.

10 Do not trust in oppression And do not vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.

10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.

10 Place no trust in oppression, or false hope in robbery. If wealth increases, pay no attention to it.

10 Don't trust in oppression or put false hope in stealing; if you become wealthy, do not set your heart on it.

10 Trust not in and rely confidently not on extortion and oppression, and do not vainly hope in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them.

11 Once God has spoken; Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God;

11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

11 God has spoken once; I have heard this twice: strength belongs to God,

11 God spoke once, but I heard it twice, "Power belongs to God."

11 God has spoken once, twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God.

12 And lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord, For You recompense a man according to his work.

12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

12 and faithful love belongs to You, Lord. For You repay each according to his works.

12 Also to you, Lord, belongs gracious love, because you reward each person according to what he does. A Davidic Psalm, while he was in the Judean wilderness.

12 Also to You, O Lord, belong mercy and loving-kindness, for You render to every man according to his work.
