Psalms 281To thee, O Jehovah, I will call. My rock, be not thou deaf to me, lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like those who go down into the pit. 2Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle. 3Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace with their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts. 4Give them according to their work, and according to the wickedness of their doings. Give them after the operation of their hands. Render to them their recompense, 5because they regard not the works of Jehovah, nor the operation of his hands. He will break them down and not build them up. 6Blessed be Jehovah, because he has heard the voice of my supplications. 7Jehovah is my strength and my shield. My heart has trusted in him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise him. 8Jehovah is their strength, and he is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed. 9Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance. Be their shepherd also, and bear them up forever.
