Psalm 28

Of David.

1 I cry out to you, LORD. You are my rock; don't refuse to hear me. If you won't talk to me, I'll be just like those going down to the pit. 2 Listen to my request for mercy when I cry out to you, when I lift up my hands to your holy inner sanctuary. 3 Don't drag me off with the wicked and those who do evil; the type who talk nice to their friends while evil thoughts are in their hearts! 4 Pay them back for what they've done! Pay them back for their evil deeds! Pay them back for their handiwork! Give back to them exactly what they deserve! 5 Because they have no regard for what the LORD has done, no regard for his handiwork, God will tear them down and never rebuild! 6 Bless the LORD because he has listened to my request for mercy! 7 The LORD is my strength and my shield. My heart trusts him. I was helped, my heart rejoiced, and I thank him with my song. 8 The LORD is his people's strength; he is a fortress of protection for his anointed one. 9 Save your people, God! Bless your possession! Shepherd them and carry them for all time!
