Psalm 64
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. A PSALM OF DAVID. Hear, O God, my voice, in my meditation, "" You keep my life from the fear of an enemy,

2Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers, "" From the tumult of workers of iniquity.

3Who sharpened their tongue as a sword, "" They directed their arrow—a bitter word.

4To shoot the perfect in secret places, "" Suddenly they shoot him, and do not fear.

5They strengthen an evil thing for themselves, "" They recount of the hiding of snares, "" They have said, “Who looks at it?”

6They search out perverse things, “We perfected a searching search,” "" And the inward part of man, and the heart, [are] deep.

7And God shoots them [with] an arrow, "" Their wounds have been sudden,

8And they cause him to stumble, "" Their own tongue [is] against them, "" Every looker on them flees away.

9And all men fear, and declare the work of God, "" And they have wisely considered His deed.

10The righteous rejoice in YHWH, "" And have trusted in Him, "" And all the upright of heart boast!
