64 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

2 Hide me from the secret counsel of evil-doers, from the tumult of the workers of iniquity;

3 Who have whet their tongue like a sword, and have aimed their arrows, even bitter words,

4 That they may shoot in secret places at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.

5 They encourage themselves in an evil purpose; they commune of laying snares privily; they say, who will see them?

6 They search out iniquities; we have accomplished, (say they), a diligent search: and the inward thought and the heart of every one is deep.

7 But God will shoot at them; with an arrow suddenly shall they be wounded.

8 So they shall be made to stumble, their own tongue being against them: all that see them shall wag the head.

9

And all men shall fear; and they shall declare the work of God, and shall wisely consider of his doing.

10 The righteous shall be glad in Jehovah, and shall take refuge in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
