Psalm 28
Douay-Rheims Bible

The Lord is My Strength

(Psalm 18:1-50; Psalm 27:1-14)

1{27:1}A psalm for David himself. Unto thee will I cry, O Lord: O my God, be not thou silent to me: lest if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

2{27:2}Hear, O Lord, the voice of my supplication, when I pray to thee; when I lift up my hands to thy holy temple.

3{27:3}Draw me not away together with the wicked; and with the workers of iniquity destroy me not: Who speak peace with their neighbour, but evils are in their hearts.

4{27:4}Give them according to their works, and according to the wickedness of their inventions. According to the works of their hands give thou to them: render to them their reward.

5{27:5}Because they have not understood the works of the Lord, and the operations of his hands: thou shalt destroy them, and shalt not build them up.

6{27:6}Blessed be the Lord, for he hath heard the voice of my supplication.

7{27:7}The Lord is my helper and my protector: in him hath my heart confided, and I have been helped. And my flesh hath flourished again, and with my will I will give praise to him.

8{27:8}The Lord is the strength of his people, and the protector of the salvation of his anointed.

9{27:9}Save, O Lord, thy people, and bless thy inheritance: and rule them and exalt them for ever.
