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.
Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
And he is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed.
Be their shepherd also, and bear them up for ever.
