Psalm 28

To you will I cry, O Lord my Rock,
   be not deaf to my prayer :
 lest, if you turn away silent,
   I become like those that go down to the grave.
Hear the voice of my supplication
   when I cry to you for help :
 when I lift up my hands
   toward the holiest place of your sanctuary.
Do not snatch me away with the ungodly,
   with the evildoers :
 who speak peace to their neighbours,
   but nourish malice in their hearts.
Repay them according to their deeds :
 and according to the wickedness of their endeavours;
Requite them for the work of their hands :
 and give them their deserts.
For they pay no heed to the Lord’s acts,
   nor to the operation of his hands :
 therefore shall he break them down and not build them up.
Let the Lord’s name be praised :
 for he has heard the voice of my supplication.
The Lord is my strength and my shield,
   in him my heart trusts and I am helped :
 therefore my heart dances for joy,
   and in my song will I praise him.
The Lord is the strength of his people :
 and a sure refuge for his anointed king.
O save your people and give your blessing to your own :
 be their shepherd, and bear them up for ever.
