Psalm 28

MY STRENGTH

Of David.

Lord, I call to you;

my rock, do not be deaf to me.d

If you remain silent to me,

I will be like those going down to the Pit.e

Listen to the sound of my pleading

when I cry to you for help,

when I lift up my hands

toward your holy sanctuary.f

Do not drag me away with the wicked,

with the evildoers,

who speak in friendly ways with their neighbors

while malice is in their hearts.g

Repay them according to what they have done—

according to the evil of their deeds.

Repay them according to the work of their hands;

give them back what they deserve.h

Because they do not consider

what the Lord has done

or the work of his hands,

he will tear them down and not rebuild them.i

Blessed be the Lord,

for he has heard the sound of my pleading.j

The Lord is my strength and my shield;

my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.k

Therefore my heart celebrates,

and I give thanks to him with my song.l

The Lord is the strength of his people;A

he is a stronghold of salvation for his anointed.m

Save your people, bless your possession,

shepherd them, and carry them forever.n

About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
