THE BOOK OF
PSALMS
PSALM 28
David pleads with the Lord to hear his voice and grant his petitions—He prays: Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance.
A PSALM OF DAVID.
  1 Unto thee will I cry, O Lord my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be asilent to me, I become like them that go down into the bpit.
  2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy aoracle.
  3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which aspeak bpeace to their neighbours, but cmischief is in their hearts.
  4 Give them according to their adeeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their bdesert.
  5 Because they regard not the aworks of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
  6 Blessed be the Lord, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
  7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart atrusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
  8 The Lord is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.
  9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
