(A psalm by David for the music leader.) Celebrate because of the LORD 64 1Listen to my concerns, God, and protect me from my enemies' threats. 2Keep me safe from secret plots of corrupt and evil gangs. 3Their words cut like swords, and their cruel remarks sting like sharp arrows. 4They fearlessly ambush and shoot innocent people. 5They are determined to do evil, and they tell themselves, “Let's set traps! No one can see us.”[W] 6They make evil plans and say, “We'll commit a perfect crime. No one knows our thoughts.”[X] 7But God will shoot his arrows and quickly wound them. 8They will be destroyed by their own words, and everyone who sees them will tremble with fear.[Y] 9They will be afraid and say, “Look at what God has done and keep it all in mind.” 10May the LORD bless his people with peace and happiness and let them celebrate.
