The Book of Psalms
Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the tumult of the workers of iniquity:
3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and aim bitter words like their arrows,
4 That they may shoot from an ambush at the innocent: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil purpose: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
6 They devise iniquities; they accomplish a cunning plot: both the inward thought of every man, and the heart, is deep.
7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So he shall make them stumble; their own tongue is against them: all that see them shall wag their head.
9 Then all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; and they shall wisely consider that which he has done.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall take refuge in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
