Psalm 61

Exaudi, Deus
Hear my cry, O God; *
give ear unto my prayer.
From the ends of the earth I will call upon you *
when my heart is in heaviness.
O set me upon the rock that is higher than I, *
for you have been my refuge and a strong tower for me against the enemy.
Let me dwell in your tabernacle for ever, *
and my refuge shall be under the covering of your wings.
For you, O God, have heard my vows, *
and have given a heritage to those who fear your Name.
You shall grant the king a long life, *
that his years may endure throughout all generations.
His throne shall abide before God for ever; *
O prepare your loving mercy and faithfulness, that they may preserve him.
So will I always sing praise unto your Name, *
that I may daily perform my vows.

Psalm 62

Nonne Deo?
For God alone my soul in silence waits; *
from him comes my salvation.
He truly is my strength and my salvation; *
he is my defense, so that I shall not be greatly shaken.
How long will you assail a man to crush him, all of you together, *
as if you were a tottering wall or a broken fence?
Their plan is only to bring down the one whom God has exalted; *
their delight is in lies; they bless with their mouth, but curse with their heart.
Nevertheless, for God alone my soul in silence waits, *
for my hope is in him.
He truly is my strength and my salvation; *
he is my defense, so that I shall not fall.
In God is my help and my glory; *
he is the rock of my might, and in him is my trust.
O put your trust in him always, you people; *
pour out your hearts before him, for God is our hope.
As for the children of men, they are but a breath; *
the children of men are deceitful; upon the scales, they are altogether lighter than a breath.
O trust not in oppression; put not vain hopes in robbery; *
if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
One thing has God spoken; indeed, two things have I heard him say: *
that power belongs to our God;
And that you, O Lord, are merciful, *
for you reward everyone according to his work.
