(2) Bow down your ear to me. Deliver me speedily. Be to me a strong rock, a house of defense to save me. (3) For you are my rock and my fortress, therefore for your name’s sake lead me and guide me. (4) Pluck me out of the net that they have laid secretly for me, for you are my stronghold. (5) Into your hand I commend my spirit. You redeem me, Yahweh, God of truth.

You will keep them secretly in a dwelling away from the strife of tongues.
