Psalms - Chapter 64 | Good News Translation

  • 1. I am in trouble, God---listen to my prayer! I am afraid of my enemies---save my life!
  • 2. Protect me from the plots of the wicked, from mobs of evil people.
  • 3. They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim cruel words like arrows.
  • 4. They are quick to spread their shameless lies; they destroy good people with cowardly slander.
  • 5. They encourage each other in their evil plots; they talk about where they will place their traps. "No one can see them," they say.
  • 6. They make evil plans and say, "We have planned a perfect crime." The human heart and mind are a mystery.
  • 7. But God shoots his arrows at them, and suddenly they are wounded.
  • 8. He will destroy them because of those words; all who see them will shake their heads.
  • 9. They will all be afraid; they will think about what God has done and tell about his deeds.
  • 10. All righteous people will rejoice because of what the LORD has done. They will find safety in him; all good people will praise him.
