PSALM 28

Of David

1 Unto thee, O Jehovah! will I cry; O my strength! hold not thy peace from me Lest if thou shouldst be silent to me, I then become like those who descend into the grave.

2 Hear the voice of my prayers when I cry to thee, When I lift up my hands to the sanctuary of thy holiness.

3 Draw me not away with ungodly men, And with the workers of iniquity, Who speak peace 320320     i.e. Courteously, peaceably. with their neighbors, When in their hearts is malice.

4 Give them according to their works, And according to the wickedness of their doings: According to the work of their hands give them, Render their reward to them.

5 Because they do not consider the doing of Jehovah, Nor the work of his hands, Let him destroy them and not build them up.

6 Blessed be Jehovah! For he hath heard the voice of my supplications.

7 Jehovah is my strength and my shield; In him trusted hath my heart, and I have been helped: Therefore exult shall my heart, And with my song will I celebrate him.

8 Jehovah is strength to them, And the strength of the salvations of his Anointed is He.

9 Save thy people, and bless thy inheritance; Feed them and exalt them for ever.
