Psalm 62: complete, commentary

post-title

CommentThe author of Psalm 62, most likely considered a Levite, illustrates his secret by being strong in the face of difficulties and being in the peace that only God can give to his soul. Addressing forcefully to the wicked, who hate the righteously lashing out at him, in the same way other men rushed against Jesus in the moment of greatest weakness, not knowing that everything had to happen at the behest of God as a gesture of sacrifice for the love of 'humanity.


Psalm 62 complete

[1] To the choir master. On "Iduthun". Psalm. Di Davide.

[2] My soul rests only in God; my salvation from him.


[3] He alone is my cliff and my salvation, my defense rock: I will not be able to waver.

[4] How long will you run against a man, to knock him all down together, like a falling wall, like a collapsing fence?

[5] Just plotting to drop it from above, they take pleasure in the lie. With the mouth they bless, and they curse in their heart.


[6] My soul rests only in God, my hope from him.

[7] He alone is my cliff and my salvation, my defense rock: I will not be able to waver.

[8] In God is my salvation and my glory; my firm refuge, my defense is in God.


[9] Always trust in him, O people, pour out your heart before him, our refuge is God.

[10] Yes, the children of Adam are a breath, a lie all men, together, on the scales, are less than a breath.
