Psalms 28

A Prayer for Help, and Praise for Its Answer.

A Psalm of David.

1 To You, O  Lord, I call;
My a  rock, do not be deaf to me,
For if You b  are silent to me,
I will become like those who c  go down to the pit.
2Hear the d  voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help,
When I e  lift up my hands f  toward
Lit the innermost place of Your sanctuary
Your holy h  sanctuary.
3 i  Do not drag me away with the wicked
And with those who work iniquity,
Who j  speak peace with their neighbors,
While evil is in their hearts.
4Requite them k  according to their work and according to the evil of their practices;
Requite them according to the deeds of their hands;
Repay them their
Or dealings
5Because they m  do not regard the works of the  Lord
Nor the deeds of His hands,
He will tear them down and not build them up.

6Blessed be the  Lord,
Because He n  has heard the voice of my supplication.
7The  Lord is my o  strength and my p  shield;
My heart q  trusts in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore r  my heart exults,
And with s  my song I shall thank Him.
8The  Lord is
A few mss and ancient versions read the strength of His people
their u  strength,
And He is a
Or refuge of salvation
w  saving defense to His anointed.
9 x  Save Your people and bless y  Your inheritance;
Be their z  shepherd also, and aa  carry them forever.
