1 Unto thee will I cry, O Lord amy rock; bbe not silent †to me:
Lest, if thou be silent †to me, cI become like cdthem that go down into the pit.
2 iiHear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee,
When I ddlift up my hands ||etoward thy holy foracle.
3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with ffthe workers of iniquity,
gWhich speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.
4 hGive them according to their deeds,
And according to the wickedness of their endeavours:
Give them after the work of their hands;
Render to them hhtheir desert.
5 Because ithey regard not the works of the Lord,
Nor the operation of his hands,
He shall destroy them, and not build them up.
6 Blessed be the Lord, because he hath iiheard the voice of my supplications.
7 The Lord is my strength and my jshield;
My heart ktrusted in him, and I am helped:
Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
And with my song will I praise him.
8 The Lord is ||their strength,
And he is the †saving strength of his anointed.
9 Save lthy people,
And bless lthine inheritance:
||Feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
