64:1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.
64:2 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint; preserve my life from the terror of the enemy.
64:3 Hide me from the council of evil-doers; from the tumult of the workers of iniquity;
64:4 Who have whet their tongue like a sword, and have aimed their arrow, a poisoned word;
64:5 That they may shoot in secret places at the blameless; suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
64:6 They encourage one another in an evil matter; they converse of laying snares secretly; they ask, who would see them.
64:7 They search out iniquities, they have accomplished a diligent search; even in the inward thought of every one, and the deep heart.
64:8 But God doth shoot at them with an arrow suddenly; thence are their wounds.
64:9 So they make their own tongue a stumbling unto themselves; all that see them shake the head.
64:9 10 And all men fear; and they declare the work of God, and understand His doing.
64:11 The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and shall take refuge in Him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
