Refuge from Treachery and Oppression

Psalm 62

1 My soul waits in silence for God only;

From Him is my salvation.

2 He only is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

3 How long will you assail a man,

That you may murder 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

5 My soul, wait in silence for God only,

For my hope is from Him.

6 He only is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.

7 On God my salvation and my glory rest;

The rock of my strength, 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.

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.

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

In the balances they go up;They are together lighter than breath.

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

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

Hallelujah and Amen! 😁
