Psalm 28 New International Version

A Prayer for Help and Praise for Its Answer

28 To you, Lord, I call; you are my Rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who go down to the pit. 2  Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place. 3  Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts. 4  Repay them for their deeds and for their evil work; repay them for what their hands have done and bring back on them what they deserve. 5  Because they have no regard for the deeds of the Lordand what his hands have done, he will tear them down and never build them up again.

6  Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. 7  The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. 8  The Lord is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. 9  Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
