Psalm 28 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

By David.

28 O Lord, I call to you.
O my rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me.
If you remain silent,
I will be like those who go into the pit.
Hear my prayer for mercy when I call to you for help,
when I lift my hands toward your most holy place.
Do not drag me away with wicked people,
with troublemakers who speak of peace with their neighbors
but have evil in their hearts.
Pay them back for what they have done,
for their evil deeds.
Pay them back for what their hands have done,
and give them what they deserve.
The Lord will tear them down and never build them up again,
because they never consider what he has done
or what his hands have made.

Thank the Lord!
He has heard my prayer for mercy!
The Lord is my strength and my shield.
My heart trusted him, so I received help.
My heart is triumphant; I give thanks to him with my song.
The Lord is the strength of his people
and a fortress for the victory of his Messiah.[a]
Save your people, and bless those who belong to you.
Be their shepherd, and carry them forever.
