A Psalm a Day – Psalm 62

Psalm 62 Good News Translation (GNT)

Psalm 62: 1-2 kjv | ... salvation. My stronghold I shall not be ...

62 I wait patiently for God to save me;
    I depend on him alone.
He alone protects and saves me;
    he is my defender,
    and I shall never be defeated.

How much longer will all of you attack someone
    who is no stronger than a broken-down fence?
You only want to bring him down from his place of honor;
    you take pleasure in lies.
You speak words of blessing,
    but in your heart you curse him.

I depend on God alone;
    I put my hope in him.
He alone protects and saves me;
    he is my defender,
    and I shall never be defeated.
My salvation and honor depend on God;
    he is my strong protector;
    he is my shelter.

Trust in God at all times, my people.
    Tell him all your troubles,
    for he is our refuge.

Human beings are all like a puff of breath;
    great and small alike are worthless.
Put them on the scales, and they weigh nothing;
    they are lighter than a mere breath.
10 Don’t put your trust in violence;
    don’t hope to gain anything by robbery;
even if your riches increase,
    don’t depend on them.

11 More than once I have heard God say
    that power belongs to him
12 and that his love is constant.
You yourself, O Lord, reward everyone according to their deeds.
