64 Hear my voice, O God, in my [a]complaint; Preserve my life from dread of the enemy. 2 Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers, From the tumult of those who do iniquity, 3 Who have sharpened their tongue like a sword. They aimed bitter speech as their arrow, 4 To shoot [b]from concealment at the blameless; Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear. 5 They [c]hold fast to themselves an evil purpose; They [d]talk of laying snares secretly; They say, “Who can see them?” 6 They [e]devise injustices, saying, “We are [f]ready with a well-conceived plot”; For the [g]inward thought and the heart of a man are [h]deep.
7 But God [i]will shoot at them with an arrow; Suddenly [j]they will be wounded. 8 So [k]they [l]will make him stumble; Their own tongue is against them; All who see them will shake the head. 9 Then all men [m]will fear, And they [n]will declare the work of God, And [o]will consider [p]what He has done. 10 The righteous man will be glad in the Lord and will take refuge in Him; And all the upright in heart will glory.
