25. Psalm 28- A prayer of help

To You, O Lord, I call, my Rock, be not deaf to me, lest, if You Be Silent To me, I become without hope like those who go down to the Pit. Hear the voice of my Supplication, as I cry to You for Help, as I lift up my hands towards Your Most Holy Sanctuary. Take me not off with the wicked, with those who are workers of evil, who speak peace with their neighbors, while treachery is in their hearts. Requite them according to their work and according to the evil of their deeds, Yea Requite them according to the work of their hands, Render them their due Reward. Because they do not regard the Words Of YHWH or The Work of His Hands, He Will Break them Down and build them up no more. Blessed Be YHWH! For He Has Heard my silent Supplications. YHWH Is my Strength and my Shield, in Him my heart trusts, so I am helped and my heart exults and with the song of my contented soul I give thanks to Him Alone. Yea YHWH Is The Strength of His People and The Saving Refuge of His Anointed. O Save Your People and Bless Your Heritage, Be their Shepherd and Carry them Forever.
