Psalm 28:7

Psalm 28:7

The first part of Psalm 28, is a lament that comes from deep within David's heart. He is pleading for God's deliverance from his enemies, entreating the Lord not to turn His ear away from him. His distress seems so intense that the psalmist imagines that he will die if the Lord does not hear his pitiful cry and respond graciously to his desperate pleas: "If You remain silent, I will become like those who go down into the pit, the silent grave."
