Tehillim - Psalms 28


1[A Psalm] of David.

Unto thee, O Lord, do 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.

2Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto Thee,When I lift up my hands toward Thy holy Sanctuary.
3Draw me not away with the wicked,And with the workers of iniquity;Who speak peace with their neighbours,But evil is in their hearts.
4Give them according to their deeds, and according to the evil of their endeavours;Give them after the work of their hands;Render to them their desert.
5Because they give no heed to the works of the Lord,Nor to the operation of His hands;He will break them down and not build them up.
6Blessed be the Lord,Because He hath heard the voice of my supplications.
7The Lord is my strength and my shield,In Him hath my heart trusted, And I am helped;Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth,And with my song will I praise Him.
8The Lord is a strength unto them;And He is a stronghold of salvation to His anointed.
9Save Thy people, and bless Thine inheritance;And tend them, and carry them for ever.
