1 Lord, my Rock, I call out to you. Pay attention to me. If you remain silent, I will die. I will be like those who go down into the grave. 2 Hear my cry for your favor when I call out to you for help. Hear me when I lift up my hands in prayer toward your Most Holy Room.
3 Don’t drag me away with sinners. Don’t drag me away with those who do evil. They speak in a friendly way to their neighbors. But their hearts are full of hate. 4 Pay them back for their evil actions. Pay them back for what their hands have done. Give them exactly what they should get. 5 They don’t care about the Lord’s mighty acts. They don’t care about what his hands have done. So he will tear them down. He will never build them up again.
6 Give praise to the Lord. He has heard my cry for his favor. 7 The Lord gives me strength. He is like a shield that keeps me safe. My heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart jumps for joy. With my song I praise him.
8 The Lord gives strength to his people. He guards and saves his anointed king. 9 Save your people. Bless those who belong to you. Be their shepherd. Take care of them forever.
