Psalm 64
New International VersionBerean Study Bible
1For the director of music. A psalm of David. Hear me, my God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy.1For the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. Hear, O God, my voice of complaint; preserve my life from dread of the enemy.
2Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, from the plots of evildoers.2Hide me from the scheming of the wicked, from the mob of workers of iniquity,
3They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim cruel words like deadly arrows.3who sharpen their tongues like swords and aim their bitter words like arrows,
4They shoot from ambush at the innocent; they shoot suddenly, without fear.4ambushing the innocent in seclusion, shooting suddenly, without fear.
5They encourage each other in evil plans, they talk about hiding their snares; they say, "Who will see it?"5They hold fast to their evil purpose; they speak of hiding their snares. “Who will see them?” they say.
6They plot injustice and say, "We have devised a perfect plan!" Surely the human mind and heart are cunning.6They devise injustice and say, “We have perfected a secret plan.” For the inner man and the heart are mysterious.
7But God will shoot them with his arrows; they will suddenly be struck down.7But God will shoot them with arrows; suddenly they will be wounded.
8He will turn their own tongues against them and bring them to ruin; all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.8They will be made to stumble, their own tongues turned against them. All who see will shake their heads.
9All people will fear; they will proclaim the works of God and ponder what he has done.9Then all mankind will fear and proclaim the work of God; so they will ponder what He has done.
10The righteous will rejoice in the LORD and take refuge in him; all the upright in heart will glory in him!10Let the righteous rejoice in the LORD and take refuge in Him; let all the upright in heart exult.
