JPS Tanakh 1917
1For the Leader. A Psalm of David.
2Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;
Preserve my life from the terror of the enemy.
3Hide me from the council of evil-doers;
From the tumult of the workers of iniquity;
4Who have whet their tongue like a sword,
And have aimed their arrow, a poisoned word;
5That they may shoot in secret places at the blameless;
Suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
6They encourage one another in an evil matter;
They converse of laying snares secretly;
They ask, who would see them.
7They search out iniquities, they have accomplished a diligent search;
Even in the inward thought of every one, and the deep heart.
8But God doth shoot at them with an arrow suddenly;
Thence are their wounds.
9So they make their own tongue a stumbling unto themselves;
All that see them shake the head.
10And all men fear;
And they declare the work of God,
And understand His doing.
11The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall take refuge in Him; And all the upright in heart shall glory.
