Psalm 28

Psalm 28

A psalm of David.

Lord, my Rock, I call out to you.
    Pay attention to me.
If you remain silent, I will die.
    I will be like those who go down into the grave.
Hear my cry for your favor
    when I call out to you for help.
Hear me when I lift up my hands in prayer
    toward your Most Holy Room.

Don’t drag me away with sinners.
    Don’t drag me away with those who do evil.
They speak in a friendly way to their neighbors.
    But their hearts are full of hate.
Pay them back for their evil actions.
    Pay them back for what their hands have done.
    Give them exactly what they should get.
They don’t care about the Lord’s mighty acts.
    They don’t care about what his hands have done.
So he will tear them down.
    He will never build them up again.

Give praise to the Lord.
    He has heard my cry for his favor.
The Lord gives me strength. He is like a shield that keeps me safe.
    My heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart jumps for joy.
    With my song I praise him.

The Lord gives strength to his people.
    He guards and saves his anointed king.
Save your people. Bless those who belong to you.
    Be their shepherd. Take care of 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。
