1 Unto thee will I cry, O Lord my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be a to me, I become like them that go down into the b.
2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy a.
3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which a b to their neighbours, but c is in their hearts.
4 Give them according to their a, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their b.
5 Because they regard not the a 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 a 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.
