1By David. 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.
2Hear the voice of my supplications, In my crying unto Thee, In my lifting up my hands toward thy holy oracle.
3Draw me not with the wicked, And with workers of iniquity, Speaking peace with their neighbours, And evil in their heart.
4Give 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.
5For 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.
6Blessed [is] Jehovah, For He hath heard the voice of my supplications.
7Jehovah [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.
8Jehovah [is] strength to him, Yea, the strength of the salvation of His anointed [is] He.
9Save Thy people, and bless Thine inheritance, And feed them, and carry them to the age!
