64 Hear my voice, O God, in my [a]complaint; Guard my life from the terror of the enemy. 2 Hide me from the secret counsel and conspiracy of the ungodly, From the scheming of those who do wrong, 3 Who have sharpened their tongues like a sword. They aim venomous words as arrows, 4 To shoot from ambush at the blameless [one]; Suddenly they shoot at him, without fear. 5 They encourage themselves in [their pursuit of] an evil agenda; They talk of laying snares secretly; They say, “Who will discover us?” 6 They devise acts of injustice, saying, “We are ready with a well-conceived plan.” For the inward thought and the heart of a man are deep (mysterious, unsearchable).
7 But God will shoot them with an [unexpected] arrow; Suddenly they will be wounded. 8 So they will be caused to stumble; Their own tongue is against them; All who gaze at them will shake the head [in scorn]. 9 Then all men will fear [God’s judgment]; They will declare the work of God, And they will consider and wisely acknowledge what He has done. 10 The righteous will rejoice in the Lord and take refuge in Him; All the upright in heart will glory and offer praise.
