Who speak peace with their neighbors,
While evil is in their hearts.

Requite them according to the deeds of their hands;
Repay them their recompense.

Nor the deeds of His hands,
He will tear them down and not build them up.
|Ps 28:6 ¶ Blessed be the LORD,
Because He has heard the voice of my supplication.
|Ps 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart exults,
And with my song I shall thank Him.

And He is a saving defense to His anointed.
|Ps 28:9 Save Your people and bless Your inheritance;
Be their shepherd also, and carry them forever.
