The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 63  

63:1 Unto the end, a psalm for David.

63:1 In finem Psalmus David

63:2 Hear, O God, my prayer, when I make supplication to thee: deliver my soul from the fear of the enemy.

63:2 Exaudi Deus orationem meam cum deprecor a timore inimici eripe animam meam

63:3 Thou hast protected me from the assembly of the malignant; from the multitude of the workers of iniquity.

63:3 Protexisti me a conventu malignantium a multitudine operantium iniquitatem

63:4 For they have whetted their tongues like a sword; they have bent their bow a bitter thing,

63:4 Quia exacuerunt ut gladium linguas suas intenderunt arcum rem amaram

63:5 to shoot in secret the undefiled.

63:5 Ut sagittent in occultis inmaculatum

63:6 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?

63:6 Subito sagittabunt eum et non timebunt firmaverunt sibi sermonem nequam narraverunt ut absconderent laqueos dixerunt quis videbit eos

63:7 They have searched after iniquities: they have failed in their search. Man shall come to a deep heart:

63:7 Scrutati sunt iniquitates defecerunt scrutantes scrutinio accedet homo et cor altum

63:8 and God shall be exalted. The arrows of children are their wounds:

63:8 Et exaltabitur Deus sagittae parvulorum factae sunt plagae eorum

63:9 and their tongues against them are made weak. All that saw them were troubled;

63:9 Et infirmatae sunt contra eos linguae eorum conturbati sunt omnes qui videbant eos

63:10 and every man was afraid. And they declared the works of God: and understood his doings.

63:10 Et timuit omnis homo et adnuntiaverunt opera Dei et facta eius intellexerunt

63:11 The just shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall hope in him: and all the upright in heart shall be praised.

63:11 Laetabitur iustus in Domino et sperabit in eo et laudabuntur omnes recti corde
