Trust Only in God

For the director of music. For Jeduthun [C a Levitical musician; 1 Chr. 16:41–42; 25:1, 6; 2 Chr. 5:12]. A psalm of David.

62 I ·find rest [wait quietly] in God;
    only he can ·save me [give me victory].
He is my rock [61:2] and my ·salvation [victory].
    He is my ·defender [fortress];
I will not be ·defeated [shaken].

How long will you ·attack [assault] someone?
    Will all of you ·kill [murder] that person?
    Who is like a leaning wall, like a fence ·ready to fall [that totters; C the wicked take advantage of the weak]?
They are planning to make that person ·fall [totter].
    They enjoy telling lies.
With their mouths they bless,
    but in their ·hearts [L innards] they curse. ·Selah [Interlude]

I ·find rest [wait quietly] in God;
    ·only he gives me hope [L for my hope is in him].
He is my rock [61:2] and my ·salvation [victory].
    He is my ·defender [fortress];
    I will not be ·defeated [shaken].
My ·honor [glory] and ·salvation [victory] come from God.
    He is my ·mighty [strong] rock and my ·protection [refuge].

People, ·trust [have confidence in] God all the time.
    ·Tell him all your problems [L Pour out your heart before him],
because God is our ·protection [refuge]. ·Selah [Interlude]

The least of people are only a ·breath [vapor; bubble; vanity],
    and even the greatest are just a ·lie [delusion].
On the scales, they ·weigh nothing [L go up];
    together they are only a ·breath [vapor; bubble; vanity].
10 Do not ·trust [have confidence] in ·force [oppression; extortion].
    Stealing is ·of no use [meaningless].
Even if you gain more riches,
    don’t ·put your trust in [L set your heart on] them.

11 God has said this once,
    and I have heard it ·over and over [L twice]:
    God is strong.
12 The Lord is ·loving [loyal].
    You ·reward [repay] people for what they have done [1 Pet. 1:17; Rev. 20:12–13; 22:12].
