28:1Unto Thee, O Jehovah, I call, My rock, be not silent to me! Lest Thou be silent to me, And I have been compared With those going down to the pit.
28:2Hear the voice of my supplications, In my crying unto Thee, In my lifting up my hands toward thy holy oracle.
28:3Draw me not with the wicked, And with workers of iniquity, Speaking peace with their neighbours, And evil in their heart.
28:4Give to them according to their acting, And according to the evil of their doings. According to the work of their hands give to them. Return their deed to them.
28:5For they attend not to the doing of Jehovah, And unto the work of His hands. He throweth them down, And doth not build them up.
28:6Blessed is Jehovah, For He hath heard the voice of my supplications.
28:7Jehovah is my strength, and my shield, In Him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. And my heart exulteth, And with my song I thank Him.
28:8Jehovah is strength to him, Yea, the strength of the salvation of His anointed is He.
28:9Save Thy people, and bless Thine inheritance, And feed them, and carry them to the age!
29:1Ascribe to Jehovah, ye sons of the mighty, Ascribe to Jehovah honour and strength.
29:2Ascribe to Jehovah the honour of His name, Bow yourselves to Jehovah, In the beauty of holiness.
29:3The voice of Jehovah is on the waters, The God of glory hath thundered, Jehovah is on many waters.
29:4The voice of Jehovah is with power, The voice of Jehovah is with majesty,
29:5The voice of Jehovah is shivering cedars, Yea, Jehovah shivers the cedars of Lebanon.
29:6And He causeth them to skip as a calf, Lebanon and Sirion as a son of Reems,
29:7The voice of Jehovah is hewing fiery flames,
29:8The voice of Jehovah paineth a wilderness, Jehovah paineth the wilderness of Kadesh.
29:9The voice of Jehovah paineth the oaks, And maketh bare the forests, And in His temple every one saith, `Glory.'
29:10Jehovah on the deluge hath sat, And Jehovah sitteth king -- to the age,
29:11Jehovah strength to his people giveth, Jehovah blesseth His people with peace!
30:1I exalt Thee, O Jehovah, For Thou hast drawn me up, and hast not let mine enemies rejoice over me.
30:2Jehovah my God, I have cried to Thee, And Thou dost heal me.
30:3Jehovah, Thou hast brought up from Sheol my soul, Thou hast kept me alive, From going down to the pit.
30:4Sing praise to Jehovah, ye His saints, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness,
30:5For -- a moment is in His anger, Life is in His good-will, At even remaineth weeping, and at morn singing.
30:6And I -- I have said in mine ease, `I am not moved -- to the age.
30:7O Jehovah, in Thy good pleasure, Thou hast caused strength to remain for my mountain,' Thou hast hidden Thy face -- I have been troubled.
30:8Unto Thee, O Jehovah, I call, And unto Jehovah I make supplication.
30:9`What gain is in my blood? In my going down unto corruption? Doth dust thank Thee? doth it declare Thy truth?
30:10Hear, O Jehovah, and favour me, O Jehovah, be a helper to me.'
30:11Thou hast turned my mourning to dancing for me, Thou hast loosed my sackcloth, And girdest me with joy.
30:12So that honour doth praise Thee, and is not silent, O Jehovah, my God, to the age I thank Thee!
