David prayeth for deliverance, complaining of his enemies.
Psalms 64:1 Heare my voyce (o God) in my coplaynte, preserue my life fro feare of ye enemie. Psalms 64:2 Hyde me from the gatheringe together of ye frowarde, fro ye heape of wicked doers. Psalms 64:3 Which whette their tuges like a swerde, & shute wt their venimous wordes like as wt arowes. Psalms 64:4 That they maye preuely hurte ye innocet, & sodely to hit him wt out eny feare. Psalms 64:5 They haue deuysed myschefe, and commoned amonge them selues, how they maye laye snares: tush (saye they) who shall se them? Psalms 64:6 They ymagin wickednesse, and kepe it secrete amonge them selues, euery man in ye depe of his herte.
He promiseth himself to see such an evident destruction of his enemies, that the righteous shall rejoice at it.
Psalms 64:7 But God shall sodenly shute with an arowe, yt they shall be wounded. Psalms 64:8 Yee their owne tunges shall make them fall, In so moch that who so seyth the, shal laugh the to scorne. Psalms 64:9 And all men that se it, shal saye: this hath God done for they shal perceaue, yt it is his worke. Psalms 64:10 The rightuous shal reioyse in the LORDE, and put his trust in him: and all they yt are true off herte, shalbe glad therof.
