Holman Christian Standard Bible
1Davidic. LORD, I call to You; my rock, do not be deaf to me. If You remain silent to me, I will be like those going down to the Pit.
2Listen to the sound of my pleading when I cry to You for help, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.
3Do not drag me away with the wicked, with the evildoers, who speak in friendly ways with their neighbors while malice is in their hearts.
4Repay them according to what they have done-- according to the evil of their deeds. Repay them according to the work of their hands; give them back what they deserve.
5Because they do not consider what the LORD has done or the work of His hands, He will tear them down and not rebuild them.
6May the LORD be praised, for He has heard the sound of my pleading.
7The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I praise Him with my song.
8The LORD is the strength of His people; He is a stronghold of salvation for His anointed.
9Save Your people, bless Your possession, shepherd them, and carry them forever.
