Psalm 62

1 My soul waits in silence for God:
    for from him comes my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation:
    my strong tower, so that I shall never be moved.
3 How long will you all plot against me to destroy me:
    as though I were a leaning fence or a buckling wall?
4 Their design is to thrust me from my height, and their delight is in lies:
    they bless with their lips, but inwardly they curse.
5 Nevertheless, my soul, wait in silence for God:
    for from him comes my hope.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation:
    my strong tower, so that I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my deliverance and my glory:
    God is my strong rock and my shelter.
8 Trust in him at all times, O my people:
    pour out your hearts before him, for God is our refuge.
9 The children of Adam are but breath, the children of earth are a lie:
    place them in the scales and they fly upward, they are as light as air.
10 Put no trust in extortion, do not grow worthless by robbery:
    if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11 God has spoken once, twice have I heard him say:
    that power belongs to God,
12 That to the Lord belongs a constant goodness:
    for you reward each one of us according to our works.
