Psalm 64

The Righteous Will Be Glad in Yahweh

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1Hear my voice, O God, in my [†]complaint;

Guard my life from dread of the enemy.

2Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers,

From the tumult of the workers of iniquity,

3Who have sharpened their tongue like a sword.

They aimed bitter speech as their arrow,

4To shoot [†]from places of hiding at the blameless;

Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.

5They [†]hold fast to themselves an evil purpose;

They [†]talk of laying snares secretly;

They say, “Who can see them?”

6They searched out unrighteousness, saying,

“We have completed a diligent search”;

For the [†]inward thought of a man and his heart are [†]deep.

7But God [†]will shoot them with an arrow;

Suddenly they will be wounded.

8So [†]they will cause their own tongue to turn against them;

All who see them will shake their head.

9Then all men [†]will fear,

And they [†]will declare the work of God,

And [†]will consider [†]what He has done.

10The righteous man will be glad in Yahweh and will take refuge in Him;

And all the upright in heart will boast.
