Psalms 28:3-4

Context

28:3 Do not drag me away with evil men,

with those who behave wickedly, 1 

who talk so friendly to their neighbors, 2 

while they plan to harm them! 3 

28:4 Pay them back for their evil deeds!

Pay them back for what they do!

Punish them! 4 

1 tn Heb “workers of wickedness.”

2 tn Heb “speakers of peace with their neighbors.”

3 tn Heb “and evil [is] in their heart[s].”

4 tn Heb “Give to them according to their work, and according to the evil of their deeds. According to the work of their hands give to them. Return their due to them.” The highly repetitive style reflects the psalmist’s agitated emotional state and draws attention to his yearning for justice.
