“In the balances they will go up.” People often think of themselves as being very weighty, very important, but from God’s perspective people are lightweights. We need to trust and obey God, because it is He who will repay people in accordance with what they have done (Ps. 62:12). Job thought he would be found innocent if he were weighed in a balance (Job 31:6). [For more on the allusion to being in a balance, see commentary on Prov. 11:1].

Psa 62:12

“for you will repay a person according to his work.” The teaching that on Judgment Day people will get what they deserve, good or bad, based on what they have done in their life is taught many times in Scripture (cp. Job. 34:11; Ps. 62:12; Prov. 24:12; Jer. 17:10; 32:19; Ezek. 33:20; Matt. 16:27; Rom. 2:6; 1 Cor. 3:8). For example, the essence of this phrase is repeated in Romans 2:6 and 2 Timothy 4:14. God is righteous, and the Day of Judgment is not a “pop quiz,” designed to catch people by surprise. God’s intention is that people would read these verses and believe them, and adjust their behavior so that they could receive a wonderful reward on Judgment Day. The Book of Ecclesiastes closes with, “This is the end of the matter. All has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole purpose of humankind. For God will bring everything we do into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or whether it is evil” (Ecc. 12:13-14). Jesus made sure his disciples knew this truth, and taught it to them (Matt. 16:27).
