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!

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!
