My rock, do not be deaf to me;
lest, if you are silent to me,
I would become like those who go down into the pit.
when I cry out to you for help,
when I lift up my hands
toward your most holy place.
Even with the workers of wickedness
who speak peace with their neighbors
when evil is in their hearts.
and according to the wickedness of their deeds.
Give to them according to the work of their hands.
Repay them what they deserve.
the works of Yahweh,
nor the deeds of his hands,
he will break them down and not build them up.
because he has heard the voice of my petitions.
My heart has trusted in him, and I am helped.
Therefore my heart rejoices.
I will praise him with my song.
Yes, he is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed one.
Be their shepherd also, and carry them forever.
