Psalm 64. Exaudi, Deus.
HEAR my voice, O God, in my prayer; * preserve my life from fear
of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the gathering together of the froward, * and from
the insurrection of wicked doers;
3 Who have whet their tongue like a sword, * and shoot out their
arrows, even bitter words;
4 That they may privily shoot at him that is perfect: * suddenly
do they hit him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in mischief, * and commune among
themselves, how they may lay snares; and say, that no man shall
6 They imagine wickedness, and practise it; * that they keep
secret among themselves, every man in the deep of his heart.
7 But God shall suddenly shoot at them with a swift arrow, *
that they shall be wounded.
8 Yea, their own tongues shall make them fall; * insomuch that
whoso seeth them shall laugh them to scorn.
9 And all men that see it shall say, This hath God done; * for
they shall perceive that it is his work.
10 The righteous shall rejoice in the LORD, and put his trust
in him; * and all they that are true of heart shall be glad.
