Chapter 64

  1. 1. [To the chiefe musician, a Psalme of Dauid.] Heare my voice, O God, in my praier; preserue my life from feare of the enemie.
  2. 2. Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked: from the insurrection of the workers of iniquitie:
  3. 3. Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bowes to shoote their arrowes, euen bitter words:
  4. 4. That they may shoote in secret at the perfect: suddenly doe they shoote at him, and feare not.
  5. 5. They incourage themselues in an euill matter: they commune of laying snares priuily; they say, Who shall see them?
  6. 6. They search out iniquities, they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of euery one of them, and the heart, is deepe.
  7. 7. But God shall shoote at them: with an arrowe, sodenly shall they be wounded.
  8. 8. So they shall make their owne tongue to fall vpon themselues: all that see them, shall flee away.
  9. 9. And all men shall feare, and shall declare the worke of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
  10. 10. The righteous shalbe glad in the Lord, and shall trust in him; and all the vpright in heart shall glory.
