Psalm 28 [A Psalm] of David. 28 1UNTO YOU do I cry, O Lord my Rock, be not deaf and silent to me, lest, if You be silent to me, I become like those going down to the pit [the grave]. 2Hear the voice of my supplication as I cry to You for help, as I lift up my hands toward Your innermost sanctuary (the Holy of Holies). 3Drag me not away with the wicked, with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace with their neighbors, but malice and mischief are in their hearts. 4Repay them according to their work and according to the wickedness of their doings; repay them according to the work of their hands; render to them what they deserve. 5Because they regard not the works of the Lord nor the operations of His hands, He will break them down and not rebuild them. 6Blessed be the Lord, because He has heard the voice of my supplications. 7The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield; my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him. 8The Lord is their [unyielding] Strength, and He is the Stronghold of salvation to [me] His anointed. 9Save Your people and bless Your heritage; nourish and shepherd them and carry them forever.
