Psalm 64. Exaudi, Deus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twelfth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. 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 see them.
  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.
