Psalms Chapter 28 |
O Lord, I call to You;
my rock, do not disregard me,
for if You hold aloof from me,
I shall be like those gone down into the Pit.
2Listen to my plea for mercy
when I cry out to You,
when I lift my hands
toward Your inner sanctuary.
3Do not count me with the wicked and evildoers
who profess goodwill toward their fellows
while malice is in their heart.
4Pay them according to their deeds,
their malicious acts;
according to their handiwork pay them,
give them their deserts.
5For they do not consider the Lord’s deeds,
the work of His hands.
May He tear them down,
never to rebuild them!
6Blessed is the Lord,
for He listens to my plea for mercy.
7The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in Him.
I was helped, and my heart exulted,
so I will glorify Him with my song.
8The Lord is their strength;
He is a stronghold for the deliverance of His anointed.
9Deliver and bless Your very own people;
tend them and sustain them forever.
