> Hear my voice, God, in my complaint. Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
64:2 Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, From the noisy crowd of the ones doing evil;
64:3 Who sharpen their tongue like a sword, And aim their arrows, deadly words,
64:4 To shoot innocent men from ambushes. They shoot at him suddenly and fearlessly.
64:5 They encourage themselves in evil plans. They talk about laying snares secretly. They say, "Who will see them?"
64:6 They plot injustice, saying, "We have made a perfect plan!" Surely man's mind and heart are cunning.
64:7 But God will shoot at them. They will be suddenly struck down with an arrow.
64:8 Their own tongues shall ruin them. All who see them will shake their heads.
64:9 All mankind shall be afraid. They shall declare the work of God, And shall wisely ponder what he has done.
64:10 The righteous shall be glad in Yahweh, And shall take refuge in him. All the upright in heart shall praise him!
