Psalm 64 (WEBP)

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

Psalm 64 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764), A Psalm H4210 of David H1732.» Hear H8085 (8798) my voice H6963, O God H430, in my prayer H7879: preserve H5341 (8799) my life H2416 from fear H6343 of the enemy H341 (8802).
[2] Hide H5641 (8686) me from the secret counsel H5475 of the wicked H7489 (8688); from the insurrection H7285 of the workers H6466 (8802) of iniquity H205:
[3] Who whet H8150 (8804) their tongue H3956 like a sword H2719, [and] bend H1869 (8804) [their bows to shoot] their arrows H2671, [even] bitter H4751 words H1697:
[4] That they may shoot H3384 (8800) in secret H4565 at the perfect H8535: suddenly H6597 do they shoot H3384 (8686) at him, and fear H3372 (8799) not.
[5] They encourage H2388 (8762) themselves [in] an evil H7451 matter H1697: they commune H5608 (8762) of laying H2934 snares H4170 privily H2934 (8800); they say H559 (8804), Who shall see H7200 (8799) them?
[6] They search out H2664 (8799) iniquities H5766; they accomplish H8552 (8804) a diligent H2664 (8794) search H2665: both the inward H7130 [thought] of every one H376 [of them], and the heart H3820, [is] deep H6013.
[7] But God H430 shall shoot H3384 (8686) at them [with] an arrow H2671; suddenly H6597 shall they be wounded H4347.
[8] So they shall make their own tongue H3956 to fall H3782 (8686) upon themselves: all that see H7200 (8802) them shall flee away H5074 (8709).
[9] And all men H120 shall fear H3372 (8799), and shall declare H5046 (8686) the work H6467 of God H430; for they shall wisely consider H7919 (8689) of his doing H4639.
[10] The righteous H6662 shall be glad H8055 (8799) in the LORD H3068, and shall trust H2620 (8804) in him; and all the upright H3477 in heart H3820 shall glory H1984 (8691).

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 64 (YLT)

[1] Hear, O God, my voice, in my meditation, From the fear of an enemy Thou keepest my life,
[2] Hidest me from the secret counsel of evil doers, From the tumult of workers of iniquity.
[3] Who sharpened as a sword their tongue, They directed their arrow-a bitter word.
[4] To shoot in secret places the perfect, Suddenly they shoot him, and fear not.
[5] They strengthen for themselves an evil thing, They recount of the hiding of snares, They have said, ‘Who doth look at it?’
[6] They search out perverse things, ‘We perfected a searching search,’ And the inward part of man, and the heart are deep.
[7] And God doth shoot them with an arrow, Sudden have been their wounds,
[8] And they cause him to stumble, Against them is their own tongue, Every looker on them fleeth away.
[9] And all men fear, and declare the work of God, And His deed they have considered wisely.
[10] The righteous doth rejoice in Jehovah, And hath trusted in Him, And boast themselves do all the upright of heart!
