Psalm of the Day – February 22, 2022 (Psalm 28)

1   To you, O LORD, I call; 
          my rock, do not refuse to hear me, 
     for if you are silent to me, 
          I shall be like those who go down to the Pit. 
2   Hear the voice of my supplication, 
          as I cry to you for help, 
     as I lift up my hands 
          toward your most holy sanctuary.

3   Do not drag me away with the wicked, 
          with those who are workers of evil, 
     who speak peace with their neighbors, 
          while mischief is in their hearts. 
4   Repay them according to their work, 
          and according to the evil of their deeds; 
     repay them according to the work of their hands; 
          render them their due reward. 
5   Because they do not regard the works of the LORD, 
          or the work of his hands, 
     he will break them down and build them up no more.

6   Blessed be the LORD, 
          for he has heard the sound of my pleadings. 
7   The LORD is my strength and my shield; 
          in him my heart trusts; 
     so I am helped, and my heart exults, 
          and with my song I give thanks to him.

8 The LORD is the strength of his people;
he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
9 O save your people, and bless your heritage;
be their shepherd, and carry them forever.
