Confidence in God's ProtectionPs 62 Hebrew title: A psalm by David.

621I wait patiently for God to save me;

I depend on him alone.

2He alone protects and saves me;

he is my defender,

and I shall never be defeated.

3How much longer will all of you attack someone

who is no stronger than a broken-down fence?

4You only want to bring him down from his place of honour;

you take pleasure in lies.

You speak words of blessing,

but in your heart you curse him.

5I depend on God alone;

I put my hope in him.

6He alone protects and saves me;

he is my defender,

and I shall never be defeated.

7My salvation and honour depend on God;

he is my strong protector;

he is my shelter.

8Trust in God at all times, my people.

Tell him all your troubles,

for he is our refuge.

9Human beings are all like a puff of breath;

great and small alike are worthless.

Put them on the scales, and they weigh nothing;

they are lighter than a mere breath.

10Don't put your trust in violence;

don't hope to gain anything by robbery;

even if your riches increase,

don't depend on them.

11More than once I have heard God say

that power belongs to him

and that his love is constant.

You yourself, O Lord, reward everyone according to his deeds.
