Psalm 64
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. A PSALM OF DAVID. Hear, O God, my voice, in my meditation, || You keep my life from the fear of an enemy,

2Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers, || From the tumult of workers of iniquity.

3Who sharpened their tongue as a sword, || They directed their arrow—a bitter word.

4To shoot the perfect in secret places, || Suddenly they shoot him, and do not fear.

5They strengthen an evil thing for themselves, || They recount of the hiding of snares, || They have said, “Who looks at it?”

6They search out perverse things, “We perfected a searching search,” || And the inward part of man, and the heart, [are] deep.

7And God shoots them [with] an arrow, || Their wounds have been sudden,

8And they cause him to stumble, || Their own tongue [is] against them, || Every looker on them flees away.

9And all men fear, and declare the work of God, || And they have wisely considered His deed.

10The righteous rejoice in YHWH, || And have trusted in Him, || And all the upright of heart boast!
