Faith Filled Friday: Psalm 62

I was looking for some Bible verses and decided to use this Psalm. It spoke to me and I hope you will will get something out of these verses as well. Verses 7 & 8 spoke the loudest.

David waits on God (vv. 1-7) and warns others to put their trust in Him, rather than in the folly of ill-gotten gain or human strength (vv. 8-12).

I had to look up the difference between defence and defense. There is no difference in meaning or function between the two words. They are simply different spellings of the same word. In America we spell it with an “s”—defense. In parts of the world where British English is used, they use the spelling with a “c”—defence.

Consider verse 9 and the unusual phrase “lighter than vanity.”

Psalm 62:1-12

1 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.

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

3 How 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.

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

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

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

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

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

9 Surely 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.

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

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

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