Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 62

To the chief musician, to Jeduthun, a psalm of David.

1 Truly my soul in silence waits

the mighty God upon:

from him it is that there doth come

all my salvation.

2 He only is my rock, and my

salvation; it is he

that my defence is, so that I

mov’d greatly shall not be.

3 How long will ye mischief devise

‘gainst man; be slain ye shall,

all ye are as a tottering fence,

and like a bowing wall.

4 Yet they consult to cast him down

from his excellency:

lies they do love, with mouth they bless,

but they curse inwardly. Selah.

5 Yet thou my soul in silent wait

the mighty God upon:

because from him there doth arise

my expectation.

6 He only is my rock, and my

salvation; it is he

that my defence is, so that I

shall never moved be.

7 In God is my salvation,

also is my glory:

and the rock of my fortitude,

my hope in God doth lie.

8 Yee people, see that you on him

do put your trust alway,

before him pour ye out your hearts:

God is our hopeful-stay. Selah.

9 Surely mean men are vanity

high men’s sons are a lie:

in balance laid together are

lighter then vanity.

10 In robbery be not vain, trust not

ye in oppression:

if so be riches do increase

set not your heart thereon.

11 The mighty God hath spoken once:

once and again this word

I have it heard that all power

belongs unto the Lord.

12 Also to thee benignity

o Lord, doth appertain:

for thou according to his work

rend’rest each man again.
