PSALM LXIV. | EAR my voice, O God, in my prayer; pre
serve my life from fear of the enemy. Hide me from the gathering together of the froward, and from the insurrection of wicked doers;
Who have whet their tongue like a sword, and have fitted their arrows, even bitter words;

Hear me, O God, in the multitude of thy mercy, even in the truth of thy salvation.
Take me out of the mire, that I sink not; O let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.

And hide not thy face from thy servant, for I am in trouble ; ( haste thee, and hear me.
Draw nigh unto my soul, and save it; O deliver me, because of mine enemies.

The posterity also of his servants shall inherit it; and they who love his name shall dwell therein.
