Psalm 64

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

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.
