Psalm 64Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

64 (0) For the leader. A psalm of David:

(1) Hear my voice, God, as I plead:
preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
(2) Hide me from the secret intrigues of the wicked
and the open insurrection of evildoers.
(3) They sharpen their tongues like a sword;
they aim their arrows, poisoned words,
(4) in order to shoot from cover at the innocent,
shooting suddenly and fearing nothing.
(5) They support each other’s evil plans;
they talk of hiding snares
and ask, “Who would see them?”
(6) They search for ways to commit crimes,
bringing their diligent search to completion
when each of them has thought it through
in the depth of his heart.

(7) Suddenly God shoots them down with an arrow,
leaving them with wounds;
(8) their own tongues make them stumble.
All who see them shake their heads.
10 (9) Everyone is awestruck —
they acknowledge that it is God at work,
they understand what he has done.
11 (10) The righteous will rejoice in Adonai;
they will take refuge in him;
all the upright in heart will exult.
