Psalms 62

62:1 «To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.» Truly a my soul waiteth upon God: from him [cometh] my salvation.

(a) Though Satan tempted him to murmur against God, yet he bridled his affections, and resting on God’s promise.
62:2 b He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [he is] my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
(b) It appears by the often repetition of this word, that the prophet endured many temptations by resting on God and by patience he overcame them all.
62:3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a c man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a d bowing wall [shall ye be, and as] a tottering fence.
(c) He means himself, being the man whom God had appointed to the kingdom.
(d) Though you seem to be in honour, yet God will suddenly destroy you.
62:5 e My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation [is] from him.
(e) David was greatly moved by these troubles, therefore he stirs up himself to trust in God.
62:7 In God [is] my salvation and my f glory: the rock of my strength, [and] my refuge, [is] in God.
(f) These vehement and often repetitions were necessary to strengthen his faith against the horrible assault of Satan.
62:8 Trust in him at all times; [ye] people, g pour out your heart before him: God [is] a refuge for us. Selah.
(g) He admonishes us of our wicked nature, which would rather hide our sorrow and bite the bridle, than utter our grief to God to obtain remedy.
62:10 Trust not in oppression, and h become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart [upon them].
(h) Give yourselves wholly to God by putting away all things that are contrary to his law.
62:11 God hath spoken i once; twice have I heard this; that power [belongeth] unto God.
(i) He has plainly born witness to his power, so that no one needs to doubt it.
62:12 Also unto thee, O Lord, [belongeth] mercy: for thou k renderest to every man according to his work.
(k) So that the wicked will feel your power, and the godly your mercy.
