THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 28 ©
David prays very fervently for himself and against his enemies, whose wickedness he describes; and, feeling the fruit of his prayer, he praises God and prays for the deliverance of the entire church.
A Psalm of David.
UNTO thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; 1be not silent to me: lest,aif thou be silent to me, I become like themb that go down into the 2pit.
Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my 3hands 4toward thy holy oracle.
5Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, whichc speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.
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.
Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not 6build them up.
7Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
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.
The LORD is 8their strength, and he is the 9saving strength of his anointed.
10Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: 11feed them also, and 12lift them up for ever.
