Psalm 28

The LORD Is My Strength

Of David.

1To You, O LORD, I call;

be not deaf to me, O my Rock.

For if You remain silent,

I will be like those descending to the Pit.

2 Hear my cry for mercy

when I call to You for help,

when I lift up my hands

toward Your holy sanctuary. a 

3 Do not drag me away with the wicked,

and with the workers of iniquity,

who speak peace to their neighbors

while malice is in their hearts.

4 Repay them according to their deeds

and for their works of evil.

Repay them for what their hands have done;

bring back on them what they deserve.

5 Since they show no regard for the works of the LORD

or what His hands have done,

He will tear them down

and never rebuild them.

6 Blessed be the LORD,

for He has heard my cry for mercy.

7 The LORD is my strength and my shield;

my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped.

Therefore my heart rejoices,

and I give thanks to Him with my song.

8 The LORD is the strength of His people,

a stronghold of salvation for His anointed.

9 Save Your people and bless Your inheritance;

shepherd them and carry them forever.
