David, professing his confidence in God, discourageth his enemies.
Psalms 62:1 Unto the end, for Idithun, a psalm of David. Shall not my soul be subject to God? for from him is my salvation. Psalms 62:2 For he is my God and my saviour: he is my protector, I shall be moved no more. Psalms 62:3 How long do you rush in upon a man? you all kill, as if you were thrusting down a leaning wall, and a tottering fence. Psalms 62:4 But they have thought to cast away my price; I ran in thirst: they blessed with their mouth, but cursed with their heart.
In the same confidence he encourageth the godly.
Psalms 62:5 But be thou, O my soul, subject to God: for from him is my patience. Psalms 62:6 For he is my God and my saviour: he is my helper, I shall not be moved. Psalms 62:7 In God is my salvation and my glory: he is the God of my help, and my hope is in God. Psalms 62:8 Trust in him, all ye congregation of people: pour out your hearts before him. God is our helper for ever.
No trust is to be put in worldly things.
Psalms 62:9 But vain are the sons of men, the sons of men are liars in the balances: that by vanity they may together deceive. Psalms 62:10 Trust not in iniquity, and cover not robberies: if riches abound, set not your heart upon them.
Power and mercy belong to God.
Psalms 62:11 God hath spoken once, these two things have I heard, that power belongeth to God, Psalms 62:12 And mercy to thee, O Lord; for thou wilt render to every man according to his works.
