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.

诗篇 28

祈求上帝帮助

大卫的诗。

1耶和华啊,我呼求你;
我的磐石啊,别不理我。
你若默然不语,
我必绝望而死。
我向你呼求,
向你的至圣所举手祷告时,
求你垂听。
求你不要把我与奸恶人一同责罚,
他们对邻居口蜜腹剑。
求你使他们罪有应得,
按他们的恶行,
按他们手上的罪恶报应他们。
他们既然毫不在意耶和华的作为和祂的创造,
祂必永远毁灭他们。

耶和华当受称颂!
因为祂听了我的恳求。
祂是我的力量,我的盾牌,
我信靠祂,就得帮助。
我的心欢喜雀跃,
我要歌唱赞美祂。
耶和华是祂子民的力量,
是祂膏立者得救的堡垒。
耶和华啊,
求你拯救你的子民,
赐福给你拣选的人,
如牧人般照顾他们,
永远扶持他们。
