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!

Protect 3  my life from the enemy’s terrifying attacks. 4 

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,

and boast, 12 Who will see them? 13 

64:6 They devise 14  unjust schemes;

they disguise 15  a well-conceived plot. 16 

Man’s inner thoughts cannot be discovered. 17 

64:7 But God will shoot 18  at them;

suddenly they will be 19  wounded by an arrow. 20 

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 Lord

and take shelter in him.

All the morally upright 25  will boast. 26
