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