Psalm 64 – Treacherous Conspirators Punished by God

Psalm 64 is a prayer to God for protection from malicious people and an account of how God punishes Treacherous Conspirators.

2 O God, hear my anguished voice; from a dreadful foe protect my life.

3 Hide me from the malicious crowd, the mob of evildoers.

4 They sharpen their tongues like swords, bend their bows of poison words.

5 They shoot at the innocent from ambush, they shoot him in a moment and do not fear.

Psalm 64 – Treacherous Conspirators Punished by God

6 They resolve on their wicked plan; they conspire to set snares; they say: “Who will see us?”

7 They devise wicked schemes, conceal the schemes they devise; the designs of their hearts are hidden.

8 God shoots an arrow at them; in a moment they are struck down.

9 They are brought down by their own tongues; all who see them flee.

10 Every person fears and proclaims God’s actions, they ponder his deeds.

11 The righteous rejoices and takes refuge in the Lord; all the upright give praise.
