Psalm 28
BSB Parallel NLT [BSB CSB ESV HCS KJV ISV NAS NET NIV NLT HEB]
Berean Study BibleNew Living Translation
1Of David. To 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.1I pray to you, O LORD, my rock. Do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you are silent, I might as well give up and die.
2Hear my cry for mercy when I call to You for help, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.2Listen to my prayer for mercy as I cry out to you for help, as I lift my hands toward your holy sanctuary.
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.3Do not drag me away with the wicked— with those who do evil— those who speak friendly words to their neighbors while planning evil 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.4Give them the punishment they so richly deserve! Measure it out in proportion to their wickedness. Pay them back for all their evil deeds! Give them a taste of what they have done to others.
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.5They care nothing for what the LORD has done or for what his hands have made. So he will tear them down, and they will never be rebuilt!
6Blessed be the LORD, for He has heard my cry for mercy.6Praise 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 will thank Him with my song.7The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
8The LORD is the strength of His people, a stronghold of salvation for His anointed.8The LORD gives his people strength. He is a safe fortress for his anointed king.
9Save Your people and bless Your inheritance; shepherd them and carry them forever.9Save your people! Bless Israel, your special possession. Lead them like a shepherd, and carry them in your arms forever.
