Book of Psalms - Chapter 64

Psalms 64:1

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

Psalms 64:2

Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:

Psalms 64:3

Who whet their tongue like a sword, [and] bend [their bows to shoot] their arrows, [even] bitter words:

Psalms 64:4

That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.

Psalms 64:5

They encourage themselves [in] an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?

Psalms 64:6

They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward [thought] of every one [of them], and the heart, [is] deep.

Psalms 64:7

But God shall shoot at them [with] an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.

Psalms 64:8

So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.

Psalms 64:9

And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.

Psalms 64:10

The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
