Psalm 28
New American Bible Revised Edition

Psalm 28*

Petition and Thanksgiving

1Of David.


To you, Lord, I call;

my Rock, do not be deaf to me,a

Do not be silent toward me,

so that I join those who go down to the pit.b

2Hear the sound of my pleading when I cry to you for help

when I lift up my hands toward your holy place.*c

3Do not drag me off with the wicked,

with those who do wrong,d

Who speak peace to their neighbors

though evil is in their hearts.e

4Repay them for their deeds,

for the evil that they do.

For the work of their hands repay them;

give them what they deserve.f

5Because they do not understand the Lord’s works,

the work of his hands,g

He will tear them down,

never to rebuild them.


6*Blessed be the Lord,

who has heard the sound of my pleading.

7The Lord is my strength and my shield,

in whom my heart trusts.

I am helped, so my heart rejoices;

with my song I praise him.


8* Lord, you are a strength for your people,

the saving refuge of your anointed.

9Save your people, bless your inheritance;

pasture and carry them forever!
