from the throng of evildoers,

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:4 - shooting from ambush at the blameless,
shooting at him suddenly and without fear.

they talk of laying snares secretly,
thinking, “Who can see them?”

they tell what God has brought about
and ponder what he has done.

and take refuge in him!
Let all the upright in heart exult!
