Psalm 62

For the Chief Musician; after the manner of Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

1My soul waiteth in silence for God only:

From him cometh my salvation.

2He only is my rock and my salvation:

He is my high tower;

I shall not be greatly moved.

3How long will ye set upon a man,

That ye may slay him, all of you,

Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

4They only consult to thrust him down from his dignity;

They delight in lies;

They bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah

5My soul, wait thou in silence for God only;

For my expectation is from him.

6He only is my rock and my salvation:

He is my high tower;

I shall not be moved.

7With God is my salvation and my glory:

The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

8Trust in him at all times, ye people;

Pour out your heart before him:

God is a refuge for us. Selah

9Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie:

In the balances they will go up;

They are together lighter than vanity.

10Trust not in oppression,

And become not vain in robbery:

If riches increase, set not your heart thereon.

11God hath spoken once,

Twice have I heard this,

That power belongeth unto God.

12Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth lovingkindness;

For thou renderest to every man according to his work.

ASV 1901

About American Standard Version

The ASV has long been regarded by many scholars as the most literal English translation since the King James Version—maybe the most literal translation ever. This has made the translation very popular for careful English Bible study, but not for ease of reading. While the KJV was translated entirely from “western manuscripts,” the ASV 1901 was influenced also by the older “eastern manuscripts” that form the basis for most of our modern English translations. Because the ASV 1901 is very difficult to find in print, Logos is pleased to be able to preserve and distribute this significant work. This is an excellent choice for comparative English study.
