Hear my voice,
in my prayer:
preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked;
from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
Who whet their tongue like a sword,
and bend their bows to shoot their arrows,
even bitter words:
That they may shoot in secret at the perfect:
suddenly do they shoot at him,
and fear not.
They encourage themselves in an evil matter:
they commune of laying snares privily;
Who shall see them?
They search out iniquities;
they accomplish a diligent search:
both the inward thought of every one of them,
and the heart,
But God shall shoot at them with an arrow;
suddenly shall they be wounded.
So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves:
all that see them shall flee away.
And all men shall fear,
and shall declare the work of God;
for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
The righteous shall be glad in the LORD,
and shall trust in him;
and all the upright in heart shall glory.
