David prayeth for deliverance, complaining of his enemies.
Psalms 64:1 To the Overseer.A Psalm of David. Hear, O God, my voice, in my meditation, From the fear of an enemy Thou keepest my life, Psalms 64:2 Hidest me from the secret counsel of evil doers, From the tumult of workers of iniquity. Psalms 64:3 Who sharpened as a sword their tongue, They directed their arrowa bitter word. Psalms 64:4 To shoot in secret places the perfect, Suddenly they shoot him, and fear not. Psalms 64:5 They strengthen for themselves an evil thing, They recount of the hiding of snares, They have said, 'Who doth look at it?' Psalms 64:6 They search out perverse things, 'We perfected a searching search,' And the inward part of man, and the heart [are] deep.
He promiseth himself to see such an evident destruction of his enemies, that the righteous shall rejoice at it.
Psalms 64:7 And God doth shoot them [with] an arrow, Sudden have been their wounds, Psalms 64:8 And they cause him to stumble, Against them [is] their own tongue, Every looker on them fleeth away. Psalms 64:9 And all men fear, and declare the work of God, And His deed they have considered wisely. Psalms 64:10 The righteous doth rejoice in Jehovah, And hath trusted in Him, And boast themselves do all the upright of heart!
