The Book of Psalms
Unto thee I call, O LORD my rock; be not deaf to me: lest, if thou be silent unto me, I become like them that go down into the pit.
2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee for help, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy sanctuary.
3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.
4 Requite them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: requite them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
5 Because they regard not the works 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 trusteth in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I thank him.
8 The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: be thou their shepherd also, and lift them up for ever.
