A PSALM A DAY – PSALM 64

Psalm 64 Modern English Version (MEV)

Psalm 64

For the Music Director. A Psalm of David.

Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;
    guard my life from dread of the enemy.

Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked,
    from the throng of the workers of iniquity;
they sharpen their tongue like a sword,
    and bend their bows to shoot their arrows—bitter words,
that they may shoot in secret at the blameless;
    suddenly they shoot at him and do not fear.

They harden themselves in an evil matter;
    they talk privately of laying snares;
    they say, “Who will see them?”
They devise injustice,
    saying “We have perfected a secret plot.”
    Both the inward thought of man and the heart are deep.

But God will suddenly shoot them with an arrow;
    they will be wounded.
They will bring ruin on themselves
    by their own tongues;
    all who see them will flee away.
All people will fear,
    and declare the work of God;
    they will wisely consider His deeds.

10 The righteous will be glad in the Lord,
    and seek refuge in Him,
    and all the upright in heart will glory.
