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.
64:2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the
insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
64:3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, [and] bend [their bows
to shoot] their arrows, [even] bitter words:
64:4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do
they shoot at him, and fear not.
64:5 They encourage themselves [in] an evil matter: they commune
of laying snares privily; they say, Who will see them?
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.
64:7 But God shall shoot at them [with] an arrow; suddenly shall
they be wounded.
64:8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon
themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
64:9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God;
for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
64:10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust
in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
