Psalm 62:1-7

Truly my soul silently waits for God; from Him comes my salvation.  He only is my rock and my salvation.  He is my defense.  I shall not be greatly moved.  How long will you attack a man?  You shall be slain, all of you, like a leaning wall and a tottering fence they only consult to cast him down from his high position; they delight in lies; they bless with their mouth but they curse inwardly.

My soul, wait silently for God alone.  For my expectation is from Him.

He only is my rock and my salvation.  He is my defense, I shall not be moved.

In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength and my refuge is in God.


Proverbs 19:23 says, “The fear of the Lord leads to life, and he who has it will abide in satisfaction.  He will not be visited with evil.”  A note in the NKJV makes a fine point: “The fear of the Lord” is contrasted (here) with all other pleasures because it alone keeps the believer innocent and provides lifelong satisfaction.
