Read Psalm 62:5-12


Read Psalm 62:5-12

         5Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
         my hope comes from him.
         6He alone is my rock and my salvation;
         he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
         7My salvation and my honor depend on God;
         he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
         8Trust in him at all times, O people;
         pour out your hearts to him,
         for God is our refuge. Selah

         9Lowborn men are but a breath,
         the highborn are but a lie;
         if weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
         together they are only a breath.
         10Do not trust in extortion
         or take pride in stolen goods;
         though your riches increase,
         do not set your heart on them.

         11One thing God has spoken,
         two things have I heard:
         that you, O God, are strong,
         12and that you, O Lord, are loving.
         Surely you will reward each person
         according to what he has done.


As the Psalmist worships God and reflects on some of the injustices of the world.  Extortion, theft, the accumulation of riches. In verses 10-11 the Psalmist declares his faith:  God is loving, therefore God is just, therefore the injustice of this world will pass away.


Find rest O my soul in God alone; my hope comes from him.
