Psalm 28

Of David.
To You, Adonai, I call—
    my Rock, do not be deaf to me.
If You were silent to me,
    I would become like those going down to the Pit.
Hear the sound of my pleas,
when I cry to You for help,
when I lift up my hands toward Your holy Sanctuary.
Do not drag me away with the wicked and with doers of iniquity,
who speak peace with their neighbors,
while evil is in their hearts.
Repay them for their deeds, their evil acts.
Repay them for the deeds of their hands.
Bring back on them what they deserve.
Since they show no regard for the deeds of Adonai
nor the work of His hands,
He will tear them down
    and never build them up.
Blessed be Adonai, because He has heard
the sound of my supplications.
Adonai is my strength and my shield.[a]
My heart trusts in Him, and I was helped.
Therefore my heart leaps for joy,
and I will praise Him with my song.
Adonai is their strength—
a stronghold of salvation for His anointed.
Save Your people, bless Your inheritance,
shepherd them and carry them forever.


  1. Psalm 28:7 cf. Eph. 6:16.
