New International Version
In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues; you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues.
King James Bible
Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
Darby Bible Translation
Thou keepest them concealed in the secret of thy presence from the conspiracies of man; thou hidest them in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
World English Bible

For I hear many whispering, "Terror on every side!" They conspire against me and plot to take my life.
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them;
With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish.
