Protection from Evildoers

For the choir director. A psalm of David.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:1 -

God, hear my voice when I am in anguish.

Protect my life from the terror of the enemy.

Hide me from the scheming of wicked people,

from the mob of evildoers,

who sharpen their tongues like swords

and aim bitter words like arrows,

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:4 -

shooting from concealed places at the blameless.

They shoot at him suddenly and are not afraid.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:5 -

They adopt[fn] an evil plan;

they talk about hiding traps and say,

“Who will see them? ”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:6 -

They devise crimes and say,

“We have perfected a secret plan.”

The inner man and the heart are mysterious.

But God will shoot them with arrows;

suddenly, they will be wounded.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:8 -

their own tongues work against them.

All who see them will shake their heads.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:9 -

Then everyone will fear

and will tell about God’s work,

for they will understand what he has done.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:10 -

The righteous one rejoices in the LORD

and takes refuge in him;

all those who are upright in heart

will offer praise.
