Psalm 62 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Psalm 62

For the choir director; according to Jeduthun; a psalm by David.

My soul waits calmly for God alone.
    My salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my savior—my stronghold.
    I cannot be severely shaken.

How long will all of you attack a person?
How long will you try to murder him,
    as though he were a leaning wall or a sagging fence?
        They plan to force him out of his high position.
        They are happy to lie.
        They bless with their mouths,
            but in their hearts they curse. Selah

Wait calmly for God alone, my soul,
    because my hope comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my savior—my stronghold.
    I cannot be shaken.

My salvation and my glory depend on God.
    God is the rock of my strength, my refuge.
Trust him at all times, you people.
Pour out your hearts in his presence.
    God is our refuge. Selah

Common people are only a whisper in the wind.
Important people are only a delusion.
    When all of them are weighed on a scale, they amount to nothing.
    They are less than a whisper in the wind.
10 Do not count on extortion to make you rich.
Do not hope to gain anything through robbery.
    When riches increase, do not depend on them.

11 God has spoken once.
    I have heard it said twice:
        “Power belongs to God.
12             Mercy belongs to you, O Lord.
                You reward a person based on what he has done.”
