Psalm 28

My Rock

By David.

Protect Me From the Wicked

O Lord, I keep calling to you.
My Rock, do not be deaf to me.
If you remain silent to me,
I will become like those who go down to the pit.
Hear the sound of my plea for mercy when I cry out to you,
when I lift up my hands toward your most holy sanctuary.
Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those evildoers.
They speak peace to their neighbors but hide evil in their hearts.

Punish the Wicked

Give to them what they have done to others.
According to their evil actions,
according to the deeds of their hands,
punish them.
Repay to them what they deserve.
Because they do not recognize the works of the Lord
or the deeds of his hands,
he will tear them down and not build them up.

Then I Will Praise You

Blessed be the Lord,
because he has heard the sound of my plea for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield.
In him my heart trusts, and I am helped.
My heart also celebrates.
With my song I will give thanks to him.
The Lord is their strength.
He is a stronghold of salvation for his anointed king.
Save your people, and bless the people that belong to you.
Shepherd them, and carry them forever.
