Psalms 28



1 Of David.
to Thee, Jehovah, will I call;
my Rock, be· not ·silent with me,
lest Thou be·​·mute with me,
and I seem·​·similar to those who go·​·down to the pit.

2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry·​·out to Thee,
when I lift my hands to the oracle of Thy holiness.

3 Draw me not away with the wicked,
nor with the workers of iniquity,
who speak peace with their companions,
but evil is in their heart.

4 Give to them according·​·to their work,
and according·​·to the evil of their actions;
according·​·to the deeds of their hands, Give to them;
return to them their recompense.

5 For they understand not the works of Jehovah, nor the deeds of His hands,
He will break· them ·down and not build them up.

6 blessed be Jehovah,
for He has heard the voice of my supplications.

7 Jehovah is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped;
and my heart triumphs;
and from my song will I confess Him.

8 Jehovah is a strength to them,
and the stronghold of the salvations of His anointed is He.

9 Save Thy people and bless Thine inheritance;
and shepherd them and lift· them ·up even·​·to eternity.
