Psalm 62
Young's Literal Translation

Waiting on God

1To the Overseer, for Jeduthun. -- A Psalm of David. Only -- toward God is my soul silent, From Him is my salvation.

2Only -- He is my rock, and my salvation, My tower, I am not much moved.

3Till when do ye devise mischief against a man? Ye are destroyed all of you, As a wall inclined, a hedge that is cast down.

4Only -- from his excellency They have consulted to drive away, They enjoy a lie, with their mouth they bless, And with their heart revile. Selah.

5Only -- for God, be silent, O my soul, For from Him is my hope.

6Only -- He is my rock and my salvation, My tower, I am not moved.

7On God is my salvation, and my honour, The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.

8Trust in Him at all times, O people, Pour forth before Him your heart, God is a refuge for us. Selah.

9Only -- vanity are the low, a lie the high. In balances to go up they than vanity are lighter.

10Trust not in oppression, And in robbery become not vain, Wealth -- when it increaseth -- set not the heart.

11Once hath God spoken, twice I heard this, That 'strength is with God.'

12And with Thee, O Lord, is kindness, For Thou dost recompense to each, According to his work!
