I wait patiently for God to save me; I depend on him alone. He alone protects and saves me; he is my defender, and I shall never be defeated. How much longer will all of you attack a man who is no stronger than a broken-down fence?


You only want to bring him down from his place of honor; you take pleasure in lies. You speak words of blessings, but in your heart you curse him. I depend on God alone; I put my hope in him.  He alone protects and saves me he is my defender, and I shall never be defeated. My salvation and honor depend on God, he is my strong protector; he is my shelter. Trust in God at all times, my people. Tell him all your troubles, for he is our refuge.  Men are like a puff of breath; great and small alike are worthless. Put them on the scales, and they weigh nothing; they are lighter than mere breath. Don’t put your trust in violence; don’t hope to gain anything by robbery; even if your riches increase, don’t depend on them. More than once I have heard God say that power belongs to him and that his love is constant. You yourself, O Lord, reward everyone according to his deeds. Psalm 62:1-12 TEV [/restrict]
