Rest In God – King David’s Pendulum Prayer

My soul finds rest in God alone;

my salvation comes from Him.

Truly he is my rock and my salvation;

he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

 

How long will enemies assault me?

Would they throw me down –

like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?

Surely they intend to topple me

and knock me off my perch;

they take delight in lies.

With their mouths they bless,

but in their hearts they curse.

 

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;

my hope comes from him.

Truly he is my rock and my salvation;

he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

My salvation and my honour depend on God;

he is my mighty rock, my refuge.

Trust in him at all times, you people;

pour out your hearts to him,

for God is our refuge.

 

Surely the lowborn are just a breath,

the highborn are but a lie.

If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;

together they are only a breath.

Do not trust in dominance

or put vain hope in theft,

though your riches increase,

do not set your heart on them.

 

One thing God has spoken,

two things I have heard:

“Power belongs to you, God,

and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”

and you are fair in justice.

 

– Psalm 62, by King David for Jeduthun.
