The Book of Psalms

Psalm 63

Exaudi Deus orationem.

A prayer in affliction, with confidence in God that he will bring to nought the machinations of persecutors.


1
Unto the end, a psalm for David.

2
Hear O God, my prayer, when I make supplication to thee: deliver my soul from the fear of the enemy.

3
Thou hast protected me from the assembly of the malignant; from the multitude of the workers of iniquity.

4
For they have whetted their tongues like a sword; they have bent their bow a bitter thing,

5
To shoot in secret the undefiled.

6
They will shoot at him on a sudden, and will not fear: they are resolute in wickedness. They have talked of hiding snares; they have said: Who shall see them?

7
They have searched after iniquities: they have failed in their search. Man shall come to a deep heart:

8
And God shall be exalted. The arrows of children are their wounds:

9
And their tongues against them are made weak. All that saw them were troubled;

10
And every man was afraid. And they declared the works of God, and understood his doings.

11
The just shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall hope in him: and all the upright in heart shall be praised.
