A Psalm of David.
281Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.28.1 to me: Heb. from me
2Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.28.2 thy…: or, the oracle of thy sanctuary
3Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.
4Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
5Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
6Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
7The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
8The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.28.8 their: or, his28.8 saving…: Heb. strength of salvations
9Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.28.9 feed: or, rule

5The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
6He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
7The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.29.7 divideth: Heb. cutteth out
8The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
9The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.29.9 to calve: or, to be in pain29.9 doth…: or, every whit of it uttereth, etc

11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
