Psalm 28

Prayer for Help and Thanksgiving for It

Of David.

1

To you, O Lord, I call;

my rock, do not refuse to hear me,

for if you are silent to me,

I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.

2

Hear the voice of my supplication,

as I cry to you for help,

as I lift up my hands

toward your most holy sanctuary.

 

3

Do not drag me away with the wicked,

with those who are workers of evil,

who speak peace with their neighbors,

while mischief is in their hearts.

4

Repay them according to their work,

and according to the evil of their deeds;

repay them according to the work of their hands;

render them their due reward.

5

Because they do not regard the works of the Lord,

or the work of his hands,

he will break them down and build them up no more.

 

6

Blessed be the Lord,

for he has heard the sound of my pleadings.

7

The Lord is my strength and my shield;

in him my heart trusts;

so I am helped, and my heart exults,

and with my song I give thanks to him.

 

8

The Lord is the strength of his people;

he is the saving refuge of his anointed.

9

O save your people, and bless your heritage;

be their shepherd, and carry them forever.
