Psalm 28

Prayer for Help and Thanksgiving

 

1 To Thee, O Lord, I call;

   my rock, be not deaf to me,

lest, if Thou be silent to me,

   I become like those who go down to the Pit.

2 Hear the voice of my supplication,

   as I cry to Thee for help,

as I lift up my hands

   towards Thy most holy sanctuary.

Psalm 28 Prayer for Help and Thanksgiving

3 Take me not off with the wicked,

   with those who are workers of evil,

who speak peace with their neighbors,

   while mischief is in their hearts.

4 Requite them according to their work,

   and according to the evil of their deeds;

requite them according to the work of their hands;

   render them their due reward.

5 Because they do not regard the works of the Lord,

   or the work of his hands,

He will break them down and build them up no more.

6 Blessed be the Lord!

   for He has heard the voice of my supplications.

7 The Lord is my strength and my shield;

   in Him my heart trusts;

so I am helped, and my heart exults,

   and with my song I give thanks to Him.

8 The Lord is the strength of His people,

   He is the saving refuge of His anointed.

9 O save Thy people, and bless Thy heritage;

   be Thou their shepherd, and carry them for ever.

– Psalm 28
