Psalm 64. Exaudi, Deus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twelfth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. Hear my voice, O God, when I complain; *
    protect my life from fear of the enemy.
  2. Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, *
    from the mob of evildoers.
  3. They sharpen their tongue like a sword, *
    and aim their bitter words like arrows,
  4. That they may shoot down the blameless from ambush; *
    they shoot without warning and are not afraid.
  5. They hold fast to their evil course; *
    they plan how they may hide their snares.
  6. They say, "Who will see us? who will find out our crimes? *
    we have thought out a perfect plot."
  7. The human mind and heart are a mystery; *
    but God will loose an arrow at them, and suddenly they will be wounded.
  8. He will make them trip over their tongues, *
    and all who see them will shake their heads.
  9. Everyone will stand in awe and declare God's deeds; *
    they will recognize his works.
  10. The righteous will rejoice in the Lord and put their trust in him, *
    and all who are true of heart will glory.
