my Strength

Of David.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 28:1 -

LORD, I call to you;

my rock, do not be deaf to me.

If you remain silent to me,

I will be like those going down to the Pit.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 28:2 -

Listen to the sound of my pleading

when I cry to you for help,

when I lift up my hands

toward your holy sanctuary.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 28:3 -

Do not drag me away with the wicked,

with the evildoers,

who speak in friendly ways with their neighbors

while malice is in their hearts.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 28:4 -

Repay them according to what they have done —

according to the evil of their deeds.

Repay them according to the work of their hands;

give them back what they deserve.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 28:5 -

Because they do not consider

what the LORD has done

or the work of his hands,

he will tear them down and not rebuild them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 28:6 -

Blessed be the LORD,

for he has heard the sound of my pleading.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 28:7 -

The LORD is my strength and my shield;

my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.

Therefore my heart celebrates,

and I give thanks to him with my song.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 28:8 -

The LORD is the strength of his people;[fn]

he is a stronghold of salvation for his anointed.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 28:9 -

Save your people, bless your possession,

shepherd them, and carry them forever.
