Salmos 28

1 [{A Psalm} of David.] Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, {if} thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. {to me: Heb. from me}

2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle. {thy...: or, the oracle of thy sanctuary}

3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief {is} in their hearts.

4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.

5 Because they regard not the works 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 trusted 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. {their: or, his} {saving...: Heb. strength of salvations}

9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever. {feed: or, rule}
