Psalm 62 Wednesday Evening 2
The God of gods alone is my castle; * my soul, from him will my triumph come.
He alone is my mountain of triumph, * my stronghold; I will not fall into the Dragnet.
How long will you talk nonsense, * indulge in gossip about a man?
All of you are like a leaning wall, * a sagging fence?
They only scheme deceit; * to ruin they indulge in lies.
With their mouth indeed they bless, * but in their heart they curse.
God alone is my castle; * my soul, from him comes my hope.
He alone is my mountain of triumph, * my stronghold; I will not stumble.
The Most High God is my triumph; * my Glory is my mountain-fortress; * God himself is my refuge.
Trust in him, the ever Strong One; * pour out your hearts before him, * for God is our refuge.
Common people are only vapor, * while big men are a delusion.
On scales they are lighter than leaves, * together lighter than vapor.
Rely not on criminal extortion; * do not idolize wealth.
When God pronounces, * pay attention!
One thing God has spoken; * only two have I heard:
“Strength belongs to God, * and to you, Lord, firmness.
For you repay * each man according to his deeds.”
