Amplified Bible

Psalm 28

A Prayer for Help, and Praise for Its Answer.

A Psalm of David.

1To you I call, O Lord,
My rock, do not be deaf to me,
For if You are silent to me,
I will become like those who go down to the pit (grave).

Hear the voice of my supplication (specific requests, humble entreaties) as I cry to You for help,
As I lift up my hands and heart toward Your innermost sanctuary (Holy of Holies).

Do not drag me away with the wicked
And with those who do evil,
Who speak peace with their neighbors,
While malice and mischief are in their hearts.

Repay them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices;
Repay them according to the deeds of their hands;
Repay them what they deserve.

Because they have no regard for the works of the Lord
Nor the deeds of His hands,
He will tear them down and not rebuild them.


Blessed be the Lord,
Because He has heard the voice of my supplication.

The Lord is my strength and my [impenetrable] shield;
My heart trusts [with unwavering confidence] in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart greatly rejoices,
And with my song I shall thank Him and praise Him.

The Lord is their [unyielding] strength,
And He is the fortress of salvation to His anointed.

Save Your people and bless Your inheritance;
Be their shepherd also, and carry them forever.

Salme 28

Bøn om hjælp

1En sang af David.

Herre, jeg råber til dig om hjælp,
    for du er min eneste redning.
Hvis du ikke griber ind,
    må jeg se døden i øjnene.
Herre, lyt til min bøn om nåde,
    jeg råber til dig om hjælp
        med løftede hænder mod din helligdom.
Lad mig ikke ende som de ondskabsfulde,
    der taler venligt til folk,
        mens de udtænker onde planer.
Giv dem den straf, de fortjener,
    lad dem lide for deres grusomme handlinger.
        Straf dem for al deres ondskab.
De ænser ikke Guds veje,
    de følger ikke hans bud.
Derfor vil Gud rive dem ned
    som et hus, der aldrig skal genopbygges.

Lovet være Herren,
    for han har hørt min bøn.
Han er min styrke og mit skjold,
    jeg stoler på ham af hele mit hjerte.
Når han hjælper, fyldes jeg med glæde,
    mit hjerte jubler af lovsang til ham.
Herren bevarer sit folk,
    han giver sejr til sin udvalgte konge.
Herre, befri dit folk,
    velsign dem, der hører dig til.
Vær som en hyrde for dem,
    bær dem i dine arme for evigt!
