My safety and glory are with God, my strong rock and refuge.
Trust God at all times, my people! Pour out your hearts to God our refuge.

Mortals are a mere breath, and the powerful but an illusions;
On a balance they rise; together they are lighter than air.
Do not trust in extortion; in plunder put no empty hope.
Though wealth increase, do not set your heart upon it.
One thing God has said; two things I have heard:
power belongs to God; so too, Lord, does kindness,
and you render to each of us according to our deeds.

Psalm 62 continued – verses 8-13
