Psalm 28

A David Psalm

1Don't turn a deaf ear when I call you, God.

If all I get from you is

deafening silence,

I'd be better off

in the Black Hole.

2I'm letting you know what I need,

calling out for help

And lifting my arms

toward your inner sanctum.

3-4Don't shove me into

the same jail cell with those crooks,

With those who are

full-time employees of evil.

They talk a good line of "peace,"

then moonlight for the Devil.

Pay them back for what they've done,

for how bad they've been.

Pay them back for their long hours

in the Devil's workshop;

Then cap it with a huge bonus.

5Because they have no idea how God works

or what he is up to,

God will smash them to smithereens

and walk away from the ruins.

6-7Blessed be God

he heard me praying.

He proved he's on my side;

I've thrown my lot in with him.

Now I'm jumping for joy,

and shouting and singing my thanks to him.

8-9God is all strength for his people,

ample refuge for his chosen leader;

Save your people

and bless your heritage.

Care for them;

carry them like a good shepherd.
