Psalms 28

A Prayer for Help, and Praise for Its Answer.

A Psalm of David.

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.
Hear 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.
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.
Requite 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
Because 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.

Blessed be the  Lord,
Because He n has heard the voice of my supplication.
The  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.
The  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.
x Save Your people and bless y Your inheritance;
Be their z shepherd also, and aa carry them forever.
