Psalm 28
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Yahweh Is My Strength and My Shield

Of David.

1To You, O Yahweh, I call;

My rock, do not be silent to me,

Lest if You are hesitant toward me,

I will become like those who go down to the pit.

2Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help,

When I lift up my hands toward [†]Your holy sanctuary.

3Do not drag me away with the wicked

And with workers of iniquity,

Who speak peace with their neighbors,

While evil is in their hearts.

4Give to them according to their work and according to the evil of their actions;

Give to them according to the deeds of their hands;

Return their dealings upon them.

5Because they do not regard the works of Yahweh

Nor the deeds of His hands,

He will tear them down and not build them up.

6Blessed be Yahweh,

Because He has heard the voice of my supplications.

7Yahweh is my strength and my shield;

My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped;

Therefore my heart exults,

And with my song I shall thank Him.

8Yahweh is [†]their strength,

And He is a [†]strong defense of salvation to His anointed.

9Save Your people and bless Your inheritance;

Be their shepherd also, and carry them forever.

2 Lit the innermost place of Your sanctuary
8 A few mss and ancient versions the strength of His people
8 Or refuge of salvation
