Psalm 64 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Prayer for Deliverance from Secret Enemies.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

64 Hear my voice, O God, in my [a]complaint;
Preserve my life from dread of the enemy.
Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers,
From the tumult of those who do iniquity,
Who have sharpened their tongue like a sword.
They aimed bitter speech as their arrow,
To shoot [b]from concealment at the blameless;
Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.
They [c]hold fast to themselves an evil purpose;
They [d]talk of laying snares secretly;
They say, “Who can see them?”
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.

But God [i]will shoot at them with an arrow;
Suddenly [j]they will be wounded.
So [k]they [l]will make him stumble;
Their own tongue is against them;
All who see them will shake the head.
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.
