Chapter 64

1

 To the chief music-maker. A Psalm. Of David.
O God, let the voice of my grief come to your ear: keep my life from the fear of those who are against me. 

 


2

 Keep me safe from the secret purpose of wrongdoers; from the band of the workers of evil; 

 


3

 Who make their tongues sharp like a sword, and whose arrows are pointed, even bitter words; 

 


4

 So that in secret they may let loose their arrows at the upright, suddenly and unseen. 

 


5

 They make themselves strong in an evil purpose; they make holes for secret nets; they say, Who will see it, 

 


6

 Or make discovery of our secret purpose? The design is framed with care; and the inner thought of a man, and his heart, is deep. 

 


7

 But God sends out an arrow against them; suddenly they are wounded. 

 


8

 The evil of their tongues is the cause of their fall; all those who see them are shaking their heads at them. 

 


9

 And in fear men make public the works of God; and giving thought to his acts they get wisdom. 

 


10

 The upright will be glad in the Lord and have hope in him; and all the lovers of righteousness will give him glory.
