Psalms Chapter 64 |
1For the leader. A psalm of David.
2Hear my voice, O God, when I plead;
guard my life from the enemy’s terror.
3Hide me from a band of evil men,
from a crowd of evildoers,
4who whet their tongues like swords;
they aim their arrows—cruel words—
5to shoot from hiding at the blameless man;
they shoot him suddenly and without fear.
6They arm themselves with an evil word;
when they speak, it is to conceal traps;
they think, “Who will see them?”
7Let the wrongdoings they have concealed,
each one inside him, his secret thoughts,
be wholly exposed.
8God shall shoot them with arrows;
they shall be struck down suddenly.
9Their tongue shall be their downfall;
all who see them shall recoil in horror;
10all men shall stand in awe;
they shall proclaim the work of God
and His deed which they perceived.
11The righteous shall rejoice in the Lord,
and take refuge in Him;
all the upright shall exult.
