PSALM 62:3-9

A (3) How long will ye imagine mischief against A MAN ? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.

B (4) They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight IN LIES: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.

C (5) My soul, wait thou only upon GOD; for my expectation is from him.

D (6) He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

C1 (7,8) In GOD is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in GOD. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: GOD is a refuge for us. Selah.

B1 (9) Surely men of low degree are vanity, […] ARE A LIE

A1 (9) and MEN of high degree […]: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.

Comment:
In verse 9 “are a lie” comes before “men ” in the Hebrew text.
