1 O True God, hear my voice! Listen to my complaint! Guard my life; keep me safe from my enemy’s threats. 2 Hide me from the sinful circle that conspires against me, from the band of rebels out to make trouble, 3 Who sharpen their tongues into swords, who take aim with poisonous words like arrows. 4 They hide in the shadows and shoot at the innocent; they shoot at them without warning and without any fear. 5 They persist in their evil purpose and plan in secret to lay their traps. And they say, “Who will see them?” 6 They plot their offense with precision and say, “Now we have the perfect crime.” The human heart and mind are deep and complex.
7 But without hesitation the True God will shoot at them; His arrow will surely wound them. 8 He will use their very own words to bring them to destruction; all who see will be appalled at what happens to them. 9 Then everyone will fear the True God; they will proclaim His deeds and will reflect upon all He has done.
10 The righteous will delight in the Eternal and will take shelter in Him. All those with an honest heart will glorify Him!
