Bible: Psalm 64
Psalm 64 1
64:1 For the music director; a psalm of David.
Listen to me, 2 O God, as I offer my lament!
64:2 Hide me from the plots of evil men,
from the crowd of evildoers. 5
64:3 They 6 sharpen their tongues like a sword;
they aim their arrow, a slanderous charge, 7
64:4 in order to shoot down the innocent 8 in secluded places.
They shoot at him suddenly and are unafraid of retaliation. 9
64:5 They encourage one another to carry out their evil deed. 10
They plan how to hide 11 snares,
64:6 They devise 14 unjust schemes;
Man’s inner thoughts cannot be discovered. 17
64:7 But God will shoot 18 at them;
64:8 Their slander will bring about their demise. 21
All who see them will shudder, 22
64:9 and all people will fear. 23
They will proclaim 24 what God has done,
and reflect on his deeds.
64:10 The godly will rejoice in the
and take shelter in him.
