For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation.
He only is my Rock and my Salvation, my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be greatly moved.
How long will you set upon a man that you may slay him, all of you, like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?
They only consult to cast him down from his height [to dishonor him]; they delight in lies. They bless with their mouths, but they curse inwardly. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
With God rests my salvation and my glory; He is my Rock of unyielding strength and impenetrable hardness, and my refuge is in God!
Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us (a fortress and a high tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
Trust not in and rely confidently not on extortion and oppression, and do not vainly hope in robbery…
God has spoken once, twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God.
(excerpts from Psalm 62)
