Psalms 64

PSALM 64.

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy. Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity: Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words: That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not. They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
matter: or, speech
,
of…: Heb. to hide his snares
They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
they…: or, we are consumed by that which they have throughly searched
,
a diligent…: Heb. a search searched
But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
shall they…: Heb. their wound shall be
So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away. And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing. 10 The righteous shall be glad in the  Lord, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
