28:1 [A Psalm] of David. To thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be
not silent to me: lest, [if] thou shouldst be silent to me, I
should become like them that go down into the pit.
28:2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry to thee,
when I lift my hands towards thy holy oracle.
28:3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of
iniquity, who speak peace to their neighbors, but mischief [is]
in their hearts.
28:4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the
wickedness of their endeavors: give them after the work of
their hands; render to them their desert.
28:5 Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the
operation of his hands, he will destroy them, and not build
28:6 Blessed [be] the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of
28:7 The LORD [is] my strength, and my shield; my heart trusted
in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song will I praise him.
28:8 The LORD [is] their strength, and he [is] the saving
strength of his anointed.
28:9 Save thy people, and bless thy inheritance: feed them also,
and lift them up for ever.
