Psalm 64

2 Hear, O God, the voice of my complaint;

 guard my life from dread of the foe.

 3 From the assembly of the wicked, hide me,

 from the throng of those who do evil.

4 They sharpen their tongues like swords.

 They aim bitter words like arrows,

 5 to shoot at the innocent from ambush,

 shooting suddenly and fearlessly.

6 Holding firm in their evil course,

 they conspire to lay secret snares.

 They say, “Who will see us?

 7 Who can search out our crimes?”

They have hatched their wicked plots,

 and brought them to perfection.

 How profound the depths of the heart!

8 God will shoot them with his arrow,

 and deal them sudden wounds.

 9 Their own tongue brings them to ruin;

 all who see them shake their heads.

10 Then will all be afraid;

 they will tell what God has done.

 They will ponder God’s deeds.

 11 The just one will rejoice in the LORD;

 and fly to him for refuge.

 All upright hearts will glory.
