1 To David. To thee, O Jehovah, will I call, my rock; thou wilt not be silent from me: lest thou wilt be silent from me and I was made like with them going down to the pit 2 Hear the voice of my supplications in my crying to thee, in my lifting up my hands to the oracle of thy holy place.
3 Thou wilt not draw me with the unjust, and with those working vanity, speaking peace with their neighbors, and evil in their heart 4 Give to them according to their work and according to the evil of their doings, according to the word of their hands; give to them, turn back to them their recompense. 5 For they will not understand for the doing of Jehovah, and for the work of his hands; he will destroy them and he will not build them up.
6 Praised be Jehovah, for he heard the voice of my supplications 7 Jehovah my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusted, and I was helped: and my heart will exult, and from my song will I praise him.
8 Jehovah strength to them, and he the fortress of salvations of his Messiah. 9 Save thy people and bless thine inheritance, and feed them and lift them up even forever.
