To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David
|64:1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the
(64:1-10) "Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer....."
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?||
They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the
inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.||
(64:7-9) God will shoot people with his arrows and make their
tongues fall upon themselves.
(64:7) "God shall shoot at them with an arrow."
(64:8) "They shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves"
(64:9) "All men shall fear."
But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall
they be wounded.
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.
The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all
the upright in heart shall glory.
