Psalms 64 [Commentary] |
||For the choir director. A Psalm of David. Hear my voice, O God, in my 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 from concealment at the blameless;
Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.
||They hold fast to themselves an evil purpose;
They talk of laying snares secretly;
They say, "Who can see them?"
||They devise injustices, saying,
"We are ready with a well-conceived plot";
For the inward thought and the heart of a man are deep.
||But God will shoot at them with an arrow;
Suddenly they will be wounded.
||So they will make him stumble;
Their own tongue is against them;
All who see them will shake the head.
||Then all men will fear,
And they will declare the work of God,
And will consider what He has done.
||The righteous man will be glad in the LORD and will take refuge in Him;
And all the upright in heart will glory.
