1To you I have cried, my god; do not be silent to me, lest, if you be silent to me, I become like those who go down into the pit.
2Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry to you, when I lift up my hands toward your holy house.
3Do not count me with the wicked and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace with their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts.
4Reward them according to their deeds and according to their evil actions.
5Because they have not understood the works of Yahvah, nor the operation of his hands, he will destroy them and not build them up.
6Blessed be Yahvah, because he has heard the voice of my supplications.
7Yahvah is my helper and my protector; my heart trusted in him, and I am happy; I will praise him with glorious song.
8Yahvah is the strength of his people, and he is the protector of the salvation of his anointed.
9Save your people, Yahvah, and bless your inheritance; also shepherd them, and take care of them forever.
