Psalms 28

A psalm of David.
 1  I pray to you, O LORD, my rock.
  Do not turn a deaf ear to me.
For if you are silent,
  I might as well give up and die.
 2  Listen to my prayer for mercy
  as I cry out to you for help,
  as I lift my hands toward your holy sanctuary.

 3  Do not drag me away with the wicked—
  with those who do evil—
those who speak friendly words to their neighbors
  while planning evil in their hearts.
 4  Give them the punishment they so richly deserve!
  Measure it out in proportion to their wickedness.
Pay them back for all their evil deeds!
  Give them a taste of what they have done to others.
 5  They care nothing for what the LORD has done
  or for what his hands have made.
So he will tear them down,
  and they will never be rebuilt!

 6  Praise the LORD!
  For he has heard my cry for mercy.
 7  The LORD is my strength and shield.
  I trust him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
  I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

 8  The LORD gives his people strength.
  He is a safe fortress for his anointed king.
 9  Save your people!
  Bless Israel, your special possession. [9] 
Lead them like a shepherd,
  and carry them in your arms forever.
<<  28:9 Hebrew Bless your inheritance.
