Psalm 28

1 To you, O LORD, I call;

 my rock, be not deaf to me.

 I shall go down to those in the pit,

 if you are silent to me.

2 Hear the voice of my pleading

 as I call to you for help,

 as I raise my hands

 toward your holy place.

3 Do not drag me away with the wicked,

 with those who do evil,

 who speak words of peace to their neighbors,

 but with malice in their hearts.

4 Repay them according to their deeds,

 according to the evil of their actions.

 According to their handiwork, repay them;

 return to them their deserts.

5 For they ignore the deeds of the LORD

 and the work of his hands.

 May he ruin them and never rebuild them.

 6 Blest be the LORD, for he has heard

 the sound of my appeal.

7 The LORD is my strength and my shield;

 in him my heart trusts.

 I was helped; my heart rejoices,

 and I praise him with my song.

8 The LORD is the strength of his people,

 a saving refuge for his anointed.

 9 Save your people and bless your heritage.

 Shepherd them and carry them forever.
