Psalm 28

Psalm 28

A psalm of David.

I pray to you, O Lord, my rock.
    Do not turn a deaf ear to me.
For if you are silent,
    I might as well give up and die.
Listen to my prayer for mercy
    as I cry out to you for help,
    as I lift my hands toward your holy sanctuary.

Do not drag me away with the wicked—
    with those who do evil—
those who speak friendly words to their neighbors
    while planning evil in their hearts.
Give them the punishment they so richly deserve!
    Measure it out in proportion to their wickedness.
Pay them back for all their evil deeds!
    Give them a taste of what they have done to others.
They care nothing for what the Lord has done
    or for what his hands have made.
So he will tear them down,
    and they will never be rebuilt!

Praise the Lord!
    For he has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and shield.
    I trust him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
    I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

The Lord gives his people strength.
    He is a safe fortress for his anointed king.
Save your people!
    Bless Israel, your special possession.[a]
Lead them like a shepherd,
    and carry them in your arms forever.

  1. 28:9 Hebrew Bless your inheritance.

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。
