51. Psalm 64- Appeal for help against enemies

Hear my voice, O YHWH, in my complaint, Preserve my life From dread of the enemy, Hide me From the secret plots of the wicked, From the scheming of evildoers, who whet their tongues like swords, who aim bitter words like arrows, shooting from ambush at the blameless, yea shooting suddenly and without hesitation. They hold fast to their evil purpose, they talk of laying snares secretly, thinking: “Who can see us? Who can search out our crimes? We have thought out a cunningly demised plot.” For the inward minds and hearts of the wicked are deep in delusion! But God Will Shoot His Arrow At them and suddenly they will be fatally wounded. Because of their tongue He Will Bring them To Ruin, all who see them will wag their heads. Then all will fear God, they will tell what He Has Wrought and ponder what He Has Done. So let the Righteous rejoice in YHWH and take refuge in Him! Let all the upright in heart give glory!
