Psalms 28

A Psalm of Dawid.

1 Unto You will I cry, O יהוה my Rock; be not silent to me; lest, if You be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto You, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy oracle.

3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.

4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.

5 Because they regard not the works of יהוה, nor the operation of His hands, He shall destroy them, and not build them up.

6 Blessed be יהוה, because He hath heard the voice of my supplications.

7 יהוה 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.

8 יהוה is their strength, and He is the saving strength of His anointed (mashiach).

9 Save Your people, and bless Your inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up forever.
