Psalms 28

The LORD is My Strength

1 Of David. To You, O LORD, I call; be not deaf to me, O my rock. For if You remain silent, I will be like those descending to the Pit. 2 Hear my cry for mercy when I call to You {for help} , when I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.
Or your innermost sanctuary or your Most Holy Place
3 Do not drag me away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace to their neighbors while malice is in their hearts. 4 Repay them according to their deeds, and for their works of evil. Repay them for what their hands have done; bring back on them what they deserve. 5 Since they show no regard for the works of the LORD or what His hands have done, He will tear them down and never rebuild them. 6 Blessed be the LORD, for He has heard my cry for mercy. 7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I will thank Him with my song. 8 The LORD is the strength of His people, a stronghold of salvation for His anointed . 9 Save Your people and bless Your inheritance; shepherd them and carry them forever.
