From Him is my salvation.

Surely He is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

How long will you assail a man,

That you may murder him, all of you,

Like a leaning wall, like a fence thrust down?

They find pleasure in falsehood;

They bless with [fn]their mouth,

For my hope is from Him.

Pour out your heart before Him;

God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 62:9 -

In the balances they go up;

They are together lighter than a breath of vanity.

Do not trust in oppression

And do not put vain hope in robbery;

If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.

[fn]Once God has spoken;

[fn]Twice I have heard this:

That strength belongs to God;

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 62:12 -

And that to You, O Lord, belongs lovingkindness,

For You repay a man according to his work.
