Psalm 62. Nonne Deo?

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twelfth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. MY soul truly waiteth still upon God; *
    for of him cometh my salvation.
  2. He verily is my strength and my salvation; *
    he is my defence, so that I shall not greatly fall.
  3. How long will ye imagine mischief against every man? *
    Ye shall be slain all the sort of you; yea, as a tottering wall shall ye be, and like a broken hedge.
  4. Their device is only how to put him out whom God will exalt; *
    their delight is in lies; they give good words with their mouth, but curse with their heart.
  5. Nevertheless, my soul, wait thou still upon God; *
    for my hope is in him.
  6. He truly is my strength and my salvation; *
    he is my defence, so that I shall not fall.
  7. In God is my health and my glory; *
    the rock of my might; and in God is my trust.
  8. O put your trust in him alway, ye people; *
    pour out your hearts before him, for God is our hope.
  9. As for the children of men, they are but vanity; the children of men are deceitful; *
    upon the weights they are altogether lighter than vanity itself.
  10. O trust not in wrong and robbery; give not yourselves unto vanity: *
    if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
  11. God spake once, and twice I have also heard the same, *
    that power belongeth unto God;
  12. And that thou, Lord, art merciful; *
    for thou rewardest every man according to his work.
