Psalms 64

Psalm 64

1David prayeth for deliverance, complaining of his enemies: 7he promiseth himself to see such an evident destruction of his enemies, that the righteous shall rejoice at it.
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 Hear my 1voice, O God, in my prayer: 2preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 1Hide me from the 2secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
3 Who 1whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
4 That they may shoot 1in secret at the perfect: 2suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They 1encourage themselves in an evil amatter: they commune bof laying snares privily; they 2say, Who shall see them?
6 They 1search out iniquities; athey accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is 2deep.
7 But 1God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly ashall they be wounded.
8 So they 1shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all 2that see them shall 3flee away.
9 And 1all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall 2wisely consider of his doing.
10 The 1righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
