1 Truly my
soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my
defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man?
ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall
ye be, and as a tottering fence.
4 They only consult to cast him down from his
excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with
their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my
expectation is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my
defence; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of
my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out
your heart before him: God is a refuge for us.
9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of
high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance,
they are altogether lighter than vanity.
10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in
robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon
11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this;
that power belongeth unto God.
12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou
renderest to every man according to his work.
Psalm 63 >
- The Book of David
The Book of Psalms which contains Psalm 62 is also referred to
as the Book of David. David reigned over Judah and Israel
was the second king of the united Kingdom of Israel. King
David is credited with the authorship of many of the Psalms
and the collection is therefore often referred to as the
Book of David.
