“David Praises God as His Defense, His Rock, and His Salvation”

Psalm 62:6–7

6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

Elder Bruce R. McConkie wrote:

“As to the Psalms, truly do they abound in declarations that Jehovah is the Savior. ‘Save me, O my God. . . . Salvation belongeth unto the Lord.’ (Ps. 3:7–8.) ‘We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God.’ (Ps. 20:5.) ‘He only is my rock and my salvation. . . . In God is my salvation and my glory.’ (Ps. 62:6–7.) ‘Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.’ (Ps. 85:7.) ‘The Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.’ (Ps. 149:4.) And so the pleas for grace and the songs of praise continue through more than three score passages. In each of them the Lord mentioned is Jehovah. He will save. Salvation is in Him.”
