Psalm 28
Majority Standard Bible Par ▾ 

The LORD Is My Strength

Of David.

1To You, O LORD, I call;

be not deaf to me, O my Rock.

For if You remain silent,

I will be like those descending to the Pit.

2Hear my cry for mercy

when I call to You for help,

when I lift up my hands

toward Your holy sanctuary.a

3Do not drag me away with the wicked,

and with the workers of iniquity,

who speak peace to their neighbors

while malice is in their hearts.

4Repay them according to their deeds

and for their works of evil.

Repay them for what their hands have done;

bring back on them what they deserve.

5Since they show no regard for the works of the LORD

or what His hands have done,

He will tear them down

and never rebuild them.

6Blessed be the LORD,

for He has heard my cry for mercy.

7The LORD is my strength and my shield;

my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped.

Therefore my heart rejoices,

and I give thanks to Him with my song.

8The LORD is the strength of His people,

a stronghold of salvation for His anointed.

9Save Your people and bless Your inheritance;

shepherd them and carry them forever.
