Psalms 28:1-9

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • The psalmist’s prayer heard

    • ‘Jehovah, my strength and shield’ (7)

Of David. 28  To you I keep calling, O Jehovah my Rock;+ Do not turn a deaf ear to me. If you keep silent toward me, I will become like those going down to the pit.*+   Hear my pleas when I cry to you for help As I lift up my hands toward the innermost room of your sanctuary.+   Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those practicing what is hurtful,+ Those who are speaking words of peace with their fellow man while evil is in their hearts.+   Pay them back for their deeds,+ According to their evil practices. Repay them for the work of their hands, According to what they have done.+   For they pay no attention to the activities of Jehovah,+ Nor to the work of his hands.+ He will tear them down and not build them up.   May Jehovah be praised, For he has heard my pleas for help.   Jehovah is my strength+ and my shield;+ In him my heart trusts.+ I have received his help, and my heart rejoices, So I will praise him with my song.   Jehovah is a strength for his people; He is a stronghold, bringing grand salvation to his anointed one.+   Save your people, and bless your inheritance.+ Shepherd them and carry them in your arms forever.+
