David pleads with the Lord to hear his voice and grant his petitions—David prays, Save Thy people and bless Thine inheritance.
A Psalm of David.
2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy aoracle.
5 Because they regard not the aworks 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 heard the voice of my supplications.
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart atrusted 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 thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
