Psalm 28Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

28 By David. Unto Thee, O Jehovah, I call, My rock, be not silent to me! Lest Thou be silent to me, And I have been compared With those going down to the pit.

Hear the voice of my supplications, In my crying unto Thee, In my lifting up my hands toward thy holy oracle.

Draw me not with the wicked, And with workers of iniquity, Speaking peace with their neighbours, And evil in their heart.

Give to them according to their acting, And according to the evil of their doings. According to the work of their hands give to them. Return their deed to them.

For they attend not to the doing of Jehovah, And unto the work of His hands. He throweth them down, And doth not build them up.

Blessed [is] Jehovah, For He hath heard the voice of my supplications.

Jehovah [is] my strength, and my shield, In Him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. And my heart exulteth, And with my song I thank Him.

Jehovah [is] strength to him, Yea, the strength of the salvation of His anointed [is] He.

Save Thy people, and bless Thine inheritance, And feed them, and carry them to the age!

Psalm 28New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 28

Of David.

To you, Lord, I call;
    you are my Rock,
    do not turn a deaf ear to me.
For if you remain silent,
    I will be like those who go down to the pit.
Hear my cry for mercy
    as I call to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
    toward your Most Holy Place.

Do not drag me away with the wicked,
    with those who do evil,
who speak cordially with their neighbors
    but harbor malice in their hearts.
Repay them for their deeds
    and for their evil work;
repay them for what their hands have done
    and bring back on them what they deserve.

Because they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord
    and what his hands have done,
he will tear them down
    and never build them up again.

Praise be to the Lord,
    for he has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
    my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
    and with my song I praise him.

The Lord is the strength of his people,
    a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
Save your people and bless your inheritance;
    be their shepherd and carry them forever.
