Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings

...hast Thou ordained strength
because of Thine enemies....

...that Thou mightest still [silence] the enemy and the avenger.
Psalm 8:2 (Authorized Version)

Merciful God, whose image Thou hast maintained in the fallen sons and daughters of Adam and Eve; strengthen in righteousness Thy covenant-keeping children, that in their weakness they might speak with holy boldness, and in their innocence Thy wisdom shew forth; through the same Lord who took on infant flesh and knoweth the weakness thereof, even Christ Jesus who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, One God now and forever. Amen.
