Chetham's A Book of Psalmody, 1718
1 UNTO the voice of my complaint,
O God, give thou an ear;
My life save from the enemy,
Of whom I stand in fear.
2 Me from their secret counsel hide
Who evil-doers be;
From noisy tumult of the men
That work iniquity:
3 Who do their tongues with malice whet,
And make them cut like swords;
In whose bent bows are arrows set,
Even sharp and bitter words:
4 That they may at the perfect man
In secret aim their shot:
Yea, suddenly they dare at him
To shoot, and fear it not.
5 In ill encourage they themselves,
And close their snares do lay:
Together conference they have;
Who shall them see? they say.
6 They have searched out iniquities,
A perfect search they keep:
Of each of them the inward thought,
And heart, is very deep.
7 God shall an arrow shoot at them,
And wound them suddenly:
8 So their own tongue shall them confound;
All who them see shall fly.
9 And on all men a fear shall fall,
God's works they shall declare;
For they shall wisely notice take
What these his doings are.
10 The righteous in the Lord shall joy,
And in him trust he shall;
And they that upright are in heart
Shall greatly glory all.

My cry let...
1 ¬∂ Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
7 ¬∂ But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
