Psalms Chapter 64 | Parsha:

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.
