Psalms 28 (asv)

Psalms 28 (asv)

A Psalm of David.

28:1Unto thee, O Jehovah, will I call:

My rock, be not thou deaf unto me;

Lest, if thou be silent unto me,

I become like them that go down into the pit.

28:2Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee,

When I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.

28:3Draw me not away with the wicked,

And with the workers of iniquity;

That speak peace with their neighbors,

But mischief is in their hearts.

28:4Give them according to their work, and according to the wickedness of their doings:

Give them after the operation of their hands;

Render to them their desert.

28:5Because they regard not the works of Jehovah,

Nor the operation of his hands,

He will break them down and not build them up.

28:6Blessed be Jehovah,

Because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.

28:7Jehovah is my strength and my shield;

My heart hath trusted in him, and I am helped:

Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;

And with my song will I praise him.

28:8Jehovah is their strength,

And he is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed.

28:9Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance:

Be their shepherd also, and bear them up for ever.
