Psalm 64 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. 64 1HEAR MY voice, O God, in my complaint; guard and preserve my life from the terror of the enemy. 2Hide me from the secret counsel and conspiracy of the ungodly, from the scheming of evildoers, 3Who whet their tongues like a sword, who aim venomous words like arrows, 4Who shoot from ambush at the blameless man; suddenly do they shoot at him, without self-reproach or fear. 5They encourage themselves in an evil purpose, they talk of laying snares secretly; they say, Who will discover us ? 6They think out acts of injustice and say, We have accomplished a well-devised thing! For the inward thought of each one [is unsearchable] and his heart is deep. 7But God will shoot an unexpected arrow at them; and suddenly shall they be wounded. 8And they will be made to stumble, their own tongues turning against them; all who gaze upon them will shake their heads and flee away. 9And all men shall [reverently] fear and be in awe; and they will declare the work of God, for they will wisely consider and acknowledge that it is His doing. 10The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall be glad in the Lord and shall trust and take refuge in Him; and all the upright in heart shall glory and offer praise.
