To the chief Musician, A Psalm of Dawid.
1 Hear my voice, O God (Elohim), in my prayer; preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity;
3 Who sharpen their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words,
4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect; suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter; they commune of laying snares privily; they say, “Who shall see them?”
6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search; both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
7 But God (Elohim) shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves; all that see them shall flee away.
9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God (Elohim); for they shall wisely consider of His doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in יהוה, and shall trust in Him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
