1 To You, O Lord, I call; My arock, do not be deaf to me, For if You bare silent to me, I will become like those who cgo down to the pit. 2 Hear the avoice of my supplications when I cry to You for help, When I blift up my hands ctoward Your holy dsanctuary. 3 aDo not drag me away with the wicked And with those who work iniquity, Who bspeak peace with their neighbors, While evil is in their hearts. 4 Requite them aaccording to their work and according to the evil of their practices; Requite them according to the deeds of their hands; Repay them their recompense. 5 Because they ado not regard the works of the Lord Nor the deeds of His hands, He will tear them down and not build them up. 6 Blessed be the Lord, Because He ahas heard the voice of my supplication. 7 The Lord is my astrength and my bshield; My heart ctrusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore dmy heart exults, And with emy song I shall thank Him. 8 The Lord is their astrength, And He is a bsaving defense to His anointed. 9 aSave Your people and bless bYour inheritance; Be their cshepherd also, and dcarry them forever.
