Psalm 62: Wait upon the Lord

See also

While waiting on the Lord, a Believer in God is often tempted to repair the problem and to take matters in his own hand. The temptation is to do things in the worldly way instead of the Godly way...in short, to "move" away from a Godly Biblical integrity.

In this psalm, David declares over and over -- encouraging himself in the Lord-- that his expectation is from God. God will defend him from the evil men of this world. Therefore, although the temptation is great to oppress (as others do) and to trust in wealth (as others do) David does not move away from his belief that the only true wise noble and good power comes from God Himself.

1{To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.} Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.

2He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

3How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.

4They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.

5My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

6He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

7In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

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

9Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.

10Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.

11God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

12Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
