Hide Me from the Wicked

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:1 - To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;
preserve my life from dread of the enemy.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:2 - Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked,
from the throng of evildoers,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:3 - who whet their tongues like swords,
who aim bitter words like arrows,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:4 - shooting from ambush at the blameless,
shooting at him suddenly and without fear.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:5 - They hold fast to their evil purpose;
they talk of laying snares secretly,
thinking, “Who can see them?”
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:6 - They search out injustice,
saying, “We have accomplished a diligent search.”
For the inward mind and heart of a man are deep.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:7 - But God shoots his arrow at them;
they are wounded suddenly.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:8 - They are brought to ruin, with their own tongues turned against them;
all who see them will wag their heads.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:9 - Then all mankind fears;
they tell what God has brought about
and ponder what he has done.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 64:10 - Let the righteous one rejoice in the LORD
and take refuge in him!
Let all the upright in heart exult!
