Psalm 62 Summary


In Psalm 62:1-2, David knew that salvation comes from God. David called God his rock, his salvation, and his fortress. David knew that he will always be safe and delivered from his problems if God is with him.


In Psalm 62:3-4, David turned his speech to the enemies, saying if they really intend to crush him, like toppling him from a high place. David said his enemies bless with the words from their mouth but they actually curse him in their hearts.


In Psalm 62:5-8, David decided to trust in God and make God his refuge and mighty rock because he know God will surely deliver him if he persistently trust in him.


In Psalm 62:9-10, David described the lowborn merely exist on the earth to live but the highborn are a lie because they generally become rich by cheating the poor. If the highborn are weighed on a balance, they are nothing because all are equal in God’s eyes. David exhorted the people not to trust in extortion, or take pride in goods stolen from other people although they can help you to increase your riches. This is because stealing is a sin and you will be punished by God for that eventually.


In Psalm 62:11-12, God is strong and loving. In the judgment day, God will reward each person according to what he has done. The faithful will be rewarded but the sinners will be punished in hell.




Psalm 62 Bible Study


1. God will reward us accordingly

God will reward everyone according to what he has done on the judgment day. God will judge our motives and actions on the judgment day. In 2 Peter 2:4-10, For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.


In 2 Corinthians 5:10, for we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. In 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.


In Romans 2:5, but after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God. In Acts 17:30-31, and the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
