The LORD is My Strength and My Shield

Psalm 28

The LORD Is My Strength and My Shield

Of David.

1 To you, O LORD, I call;
   my rock, be not deaf to me,
lest, if you be silent to me,
   I become like those who go down to the pit.

2 Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy,
   when I cry to you for help,
when I lift up my hands
   toward your most holy sanctuary.

3 Do not drag me off with the wicked,
   with the workers of evil,
who speak peace with their neighbors
   while evil is in their hearts.

4 Give to them according to their work
   and according to the evil of their deeds;
give to them according to the work of their hands;
   render them their due reward.

5 Because they do not regard the works of the LORD
   or the work of his hands,
he will tear them down and build them up no more.

6 Blessed be the LORD!
   For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.

7 The LORD is my strength and my shield;
   in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults,
   and with my song I give thanks to him.

8 The LORD is the strength of his people;
   he is the saving refuge of his anointed.

9 Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!
   Be their shepherd and carry them forever.
