Psalm 64
New Living TranslationHebrew Study Bible
1O God, listen to my complaint. Protect my life from my enemies’ threats.1לַמְנַצֵּ֗חַ מִזְמ֥וֹר לְדָוִֽד׃ שְׁמַע־ אֱלֹהִ֣ים קוֹלִ֣י בְשִׂיחִ֑י מִפַּ֥חַד א֝וֹיֵ֗ב תִּצֹּ֥ר חַיָּֽי׃
2Hide me from the plots of this evil mob, from this gang of wrongdoers.2תַּ֭סְתִּירֵנִי מִסּ֣וֹד מְרֵעִ֑ים מֵ֝רִגְשַׁ֗ת פֹּ֣עֲלֵי אָֽוֶן׃
3They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim their bitter words like arrows.3אֲשֶׁ֤ר שָׁנְנ֣וּ כַחֶ֣רֶב לְשׁוֹנָ֑ם דָּרְכ֥וּ חִ֝צָּ֗ם דָּבָ֥ר מָֽר׃
4They shoot from ambush at the innocent, attacking suddenly and fearlessly.4לִיר֣וֹת בַּמִּסְתָּרִ֣ים תָּ֑ם פִּתְאֹ֥ם יֹ֝רֻ֗הוּ וְלֹ֣א יִירָֽאוּ׃
5They encourage each other to do evil and plan how to set their traps in secret. “Who will ever notice?” they ask.5יְחַזְּקוּ־ לָ֨מוֹ ׀ דָּ֘בָ֤ר רָ֗ע יְֽ֭סַפְּרוּ לִטְמ֣וֹן מוֹקְשִׁ֑ים אָ֝מְר֗וּ מִ֣י יִרְאֶה־ לָּֽמוֹ׃
6As they plot their crimes, they say, “We have devised the perfect plan!” Yes, the human heart and mind are cunning.6יַֽחְפְּֽשׂוּ־ עוֹלֹ֗ת תַּ֭מְנוּ חֵ֣פֶשׂ מְחֻפָּ֑שׂ וְקֶ֥רֶב אִ֝֗ישׁ וְלֵ֣ב עָמֹֽק׃
7But God himself will shoot them with his arrows, suddenly striking them down.7וַיֹּרֵ֗ם אֱלֹ֫הִ֥ים חֵ֥ץ פִּתְא֑וֹם הָ֝י֗וּ מַכּוֹתָֽם׃
8Their own tongues will ruin them, and all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.8וַיַּכְשִׁיל֣וּהוּ עָלֵ֣ימוֹ לְשׁוֹנָ֑ם יִ֝תְנֹדֲד֗וּ כָּל־ רֹ֥אֵה בָֽם׃
9Then everyone will be afraid; they will proclaim the mighty acts of God and realize all the amazing things he does.9וַיִּֽירְא֗וּ כָּל־ אָ֫דָ֥ם וַ֭יַּגִּידוּ פֹּ֥עַל אֱלֹהִ֗ים וּֽמַעֲשֵׂ֥הוּ הִשְׂכִּֽילוּ׃
10The godly will rejoice in the LORD and find shelter in him. And those who do what is right will praise him.10יִשְׂמַ֬ח צַדִּ֣יק בַּ֭יהוָה וְחָ֣סָה ב֑וֹ וְ֝יִתְהַֽלְל֗וּ כָּל־ יִשְׁרֵי־ לֵֽב׃
