The first book of Psalms, song 28, New English Translation

Psalm 28

   By David.
   1 To you, O LORD, I cry out! My protector, do not ignore me! If you do not respond to me, I will join those who are descending into the grave. 2 Hear my plea for mercy when I cry out to you for help, when I lift my hands toward your holy temple!
   3 Do not drag me away with evil men, with those who behave wickedly, who talk so friendly to their neighbors, while they plan to harm them!
   4 Pay them back for their evil deeds! Pay them back for what they do! Punish them!
   5 For they do not understand the LORD's actions, or the way he carries out justice. The LORD will permanently demolish them.
   6 The LORD deserves praise, for he has heard my plea for mercy!
   7 The LORD strengthens and protects me; I trust in him with all my heart. I am rescued and my heart is full of joy; I will sing to him in gratitude.
   8 The LORD strengthens his people; he protects and delivers his chosen king.
   9 Deliver your people! Empower the nation that belongs to you! Care for them like a shepherd and carry them in your arms at all times!
