Psalm 62. Nonne Deo?

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twelfth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. For God alone my soul in silence waits; *
    from him comes my salvation.
  2. He alone is my rock and my salvation, *
    my stronghold, so that I shall not be greatly shaken.
  3. How long will you assail me to crush me, all of you together, *
    as if you were a leaning fence, a toppling wall?
  4. They seek only to bring me down from my place of honor; *
    lies are their chief delight.
  5. They bless with their lips, *
    but in their hearts they curse.
  6. For God alone my soul in silence waits; *
    truly, my hope is in him.
  7. He alone is my rock and my salvation, *
    my stronghold, so that I shall not be shaken.
  8. In God is my safety and my honor; *
    God is my strong rock and my refuge.
  9. Put your trust in him always, O people, *
    pour out your hearts before him, for God is our refuge.
  10. Those of high degree are but a fleeting breath, *
    even those of low estate cannot be trusted.
  11. On the scales they are lighter than a breath, *
    all of them together.
  12. Put no trust in extortion; in robbery take no empty pride; *
    though wealth increase, set not your heart upon it.
  13. God has spoken once, twice have I heard it, *
    that power belongs to God.
  14. Steadfast love is yours, O Lord, *
    for you repay everyone according to his deeds.
