Psalm 61

Assurance of God’s Protection

To the leader: with stringed instruments. Of David.
1 Hear my cry, O God;
   listen to my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth I call to you,
   when my heart is faint.


Lead me to the rock
   that is higher than I;
3 for you are my refuge,
   a strong tower against the enemy.


4 Let me abide in your tent for ever,
   find refuge under the shelter of your wings.
          Selah
5 For you, O God, have heard my vows;
   you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.


6 Prolong the life of the king;
   may his years endure to all generations!
7 May he be enthroned for ever before God;
   appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!


8 So I will always sing praises to your name,
   as I pay my vows day after day.

Psalm 62

Song of Trust in God Alone

To the leader: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
   from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
   my fortress; I shall never be shaken.


3 How long will you assail a person,
   will you batter your victim, all of you,
   as you would a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 Their only plan is to bring down a person of prominence.
   They take pleasure in falsehood;
they bless with their mouths,
   but inwardly they curse.
          Selah


5 For God alone my soul waits in silence,
   for my hope is from him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
   my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my deliverance and my honour;
   my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.


8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
   pour out your heart before him;
   God is a refuge for us.
          Selah


9 Those of low estate are but a breath,
   those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
   they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no confidence in extortion,
   and set no vain hopes on robbery;
   if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.


11 Once God has spoken;
   twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
12   and steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord.
For you repay to all
   according to their work.
