David, professing his confidence in God, discourageth his enemies.
Psalms 62:1 My soule wayteth only vpon God, for of him commeth my helpe. Psalms 62:2 He only is my stregth, my saluacion, my defence, so yt I shal not greatly fall. Psalms 62:3 How longe wil ye ymagin myschefe agaynst euery man? ye shal be slayne all ye sorte of you: yee as a tottringe wall shal ye be, & like a broken hedge. Psalms 62:4 Their deuyce is only how to put him out, their delyte is i lyes: they geue good wordes wt their mouth but curse wt their herte.
In the same confidence he encourageth the godly.
Psalms 62:5 Sela. Neuertheles, my soule abydeth only vpon God, for he is my God. Psalms 62:6 He only is my stregth, my saluacion, my defence: so yt I shal not fall. Psalms 62:7 In God is my health, my glory, my might, & in God is my trust. Psalms 62:8 Oput yor trust in him allwaye (ye people) poure out yor hertes before him, for God is oure hope.
No trust is to be put in worldly things.
Psalms 62:9 Sela. As for men, they are but vayne, me are disceatfull: vpo the weightes they are al together lighter then vanite itself. Psalms 62:10 O trust not in wronge & robbery, geue not yor selues vnto vanite: yf riches increase, set not yor herte vpon them.
Power and mercy belong to God.
Psalms 62:11 God spake once a worde, twyse haue I herde the same: that power belongeth vnto God. Psalms 62:12 That thou LORDE art mercifull, & that thou rewardest euery man acordinge to his workes.
