Psalm 64
New Living TranslationBerean Study Bible
1O God, listen to my complaint. Protect my life from my enemies’ threats.1For the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. Hear, O God, my voice of complaint; preserve my life from dread of the enemy.
2Hide me from the plots of this evil mob, from this gang of wrongdoers.2Hide me from the scheming of the wicked, from the mob of workers of iniquity,
3They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim their bitter words like arrows.3who sharpen their tongues like swords and aim their bitter words like arrows,
4They shoot from ambush at the innocent, attacking suddenly and fearlessly.4ambushing the innocent in seclusion, shooting suddenly, without fear.
5They encourage each other to do evil and plan how to set their traps in secret. “Who will ever notice?” they ask.5They hold fast to their evil purpose; they speak of hiding their snares. “Who will see them?” they say.
6As they plot their crimes, they say, “We have devised the perfect plan!” Yes, the human heart and mind are cunning.6They devise injustice and say, “We have perfected a secret plan.” For the inner man and the heart are mysterious.
7But God himself will shoot them with his arrows, suddenly striking them down.7But God will shoot them with arrows; suddenly they will be wounded.
8Their own tongues will ruin them, and all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.8They will be made to stumble, their own tongues turned against them. All who see will shake their heads.
9Then everyone will be afraid; they will proclaim the mighty acts of God and realize all the amazing things he does.9Then all mankind will fear and proclaim the work of God; so they will ponder what He has done.
10The godly will rejoice in the LORD and find shelter in him. And those who do what is right will praise him.10Let the righteous rejoice in the LORD and take refuge in Him; let all the upright in heart exult.
