Psalm 28 (WEBP)

[1] To you, Yahweh, I call. My rock, don’t be deaf to me, lest, if you are silent to me, I would become like those who go down into the pit.
[2] Hear the voice of my petitions, when I cry to you, when I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.
[3] Don’t draw me away with the wicked, with the workers of iniquity who speak peace with their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts.
[4] Give them according to their work, and according to the wickedness of their doings. Give them according to the operation of their hands. Bring back on them what they deserve.
[5] Because they don’t respect the works of Yahweh, nor the operation of his hands, he will break them down and not build them up.
[6] Blessed be Yahweh, because he has heard the voice of my petitions.
[7] Yahweh is my strength and my shield. My heart has trusted in him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices. With my song I will thank him.
[8] Yahweh is their strength. He is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed.
[9] Save your people, and bless your inheritance. Be their shepherd also, and bear them up forever.

Psalm 28 (KJVS)

[1] «[A Psalm] of David H1732.» Unto thee will I cry H7121 (8799), O LORD H3068 my rock H6697; be not silent H2814 (8799) to me: lest, [if] thou be silent H2790 (8799) to me, I become H4911 (8738) like them that go down H3381 (8802) into the pit H953.
[2] Hear H8085 (8798) the voice H6963 of my supplications H8469, when I cry H7768 (8763) unto thee, when I lift up H5375 (8800) my hands H3027 toward thy holy H6944 oracle H1687.
[3] Draw me not away H4900 (8799) with the wicked H7563, and with the workers H6466 (8802) of iniquity H205, which speak H1696 (8802) peace H7965 to their neighbours H7453, but mischief H7451 [is] in their hearts H3824.
[4] Give H5414 (8798) them according to their deeds H6467, and according to the wickedness H7455 of their endeavours H4611: give H5414 (8798) them after the work H4639 of their hands H3027; render H7725 (8685) to them their desert H1576.
[5] Because they regard H995 (8799) not the works H6468 of the LORD H3068, nor the operation H4639 of his hands H3027, he shall destroy H2040 (8799) them, and not build them up H1129 (8799).
[6] Blessed H1288 (8803) [be] the LORD H3068, because he hath heard H8085 (8804) the voice H6963 of my supplications H8469.
[7] The LORD H3068 [is] my strength H5797 and my shield H4043; my heart H3820 trusted H982 (8804) in him, and I am helped H5826 (8738): therefore my heart H3820 greatly rejoiceth H5937 (8799); and with my song H7892 will I praise H3034 (8686) him.
[8] The LORD H3068 [is] their strength H5797, and he [is] the saving H3444 strength H4581 of his anointed H4899.
[9] Save H3467 (8685) thy people H5971, and bless H1288 (8761) thine inheritance H5159: feed H7462 (8798) them also, and lift them up H5375 (8761) for ever H5769.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 28 (YLT)

[1] Unto Thee, O Jehovah, I call, My rock, be not silent to me! Lest Thou be silent to me, And I have been compared With those going down to the pit.
[2] Hear the voice of my supplications, In my crying unto Thee, In my lifting up my hands toward thy holy oracle.
[3] Draw me not with the wicked, And with workers of iniquity, Speaking peace with their neighbours, And evil in their heart.
[4] Give to them according to their acting, And according to the evil of their doings. According to the work of their hands give to them. Return their deed to them.
[5] For they attend not to the doing of Jehovah, And unto the work of His hands. He throweth them down, And doth not build them up.
[6] Blessed is Jehovah, For He hath heard the voice of my supplications.
[7] Jehovah is my strength, and my shield, In Him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. And my heart exulteth, And with my song I thank Him.
[8] Jehovah is strength to him, Yea, the strength of the salvation of His anointed is He.
[9] Save Thy people, and bless Thine inheritance, And feed them, and carry them to the age!
