Psalm 64 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Psalm 64

Hide Me From the Conspiracy

Heading
For the choir director. A psalm by David.

Opening Plea

Hear my voice, O God, when I complain.
Protect my life from the terror caused by the enemy.
Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked,
from the noisy mob of evildoers.

The Enemies’ Wickedness

They sharpen their tongues like a sword.
They shoot poison words like arrows.
They shoot at the innocent from hiding places.
Suddenly they shoot at him. They have no fear.
They strengthen each other in an evil plot.
They discuss where to hide snares.
They say, “Who will see them?”
They plot evil deeds and they say,
“We have come up with a perfect plot!”
The mind and heart of man are devious!

God’s Judgment

But God will shoot them.
Suddenly they are wounded with an arrow.
Their own tongues cause their downfall.[a]
Everyone who sees them will shake his head.

The Joy of the Godly

Then all people will be afraid.
They will proclaim the work of God.
They will consider what he has done.
10 Let the righteous rejoice in the Lord
and take refuge in him.
Let all the upright in heart be confident!
