To You, O LORD, I call; My 1rock, do not be deaf to me, For if You 2are silent to me, I will becomelike those who 3godown to the pit.
2Hear the 4voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help, When I 5lift up my hands6towardaYour holy7sanctuary.
38Do not drag me away with the wicked And with those who workiniquity, Who 9speakpeace with their neighbors, While evil is in their hearts.
4Requite them 10according to their work and according to the evil of their practices; Requite them according to the deeds of their hands; Repay them their brecompense.
5Because they 11do not regard the works of the LORDNor the deeds of His hands, He will tear them down and not build them up.
6Blessed be the LORD, Because He 12has heard the voice of my supplication.
The LORD is my 13strength and my 14shield; My heart15trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore 16my heartexults, And with 17my song I shall thank Him.
