The Book of Psalms

Psalm 61

Nonne Deo.

The prophet encourageth himself and all others to trust in God, and serve him.


1
Unto the end, for Idithun, a psalm of David.

2
Shall not my soul be subject to God? for from him is my salvation.

3
For he is my God and my saviour: he is my protector, I shall be moved no more.

4
How long do you rush in upon a man? you all kill, as if you were thrusting down a leaning wall, and a tottering fence.

5
But they have thought to cast away my price; I ran in thirst: they blessed with their mouth, but cursed with their heart.

6
But be thou, O my soul, subject to God: for from him is my patience.

7
For he is my God and my saviour: he is my helper, I shall not be moved.

8
In God is my salvation and my glory: he is the God of my help, and my hope is in God.

9
Trust in him, all ye congregation of people: pour out your hearts before him. God is our helper for ever.

10
But vain are the sons of men, the sons of men are liars in the balances: that by vanity they may together deceive.

11
Trust not in iniquity, and cover not robberies: if riches abound, set not your heart upon them.

12
God hath spoken once, these two things have I heard, that power belongeth to God,

13
And mercy to thee, O Lord; for thou wilt render to every man according to his works.
