To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

1

HEAR my avoice, O God, in my prayer: bpreserve my life from fear of the enemy.

2

cHide me from the dsecret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:

3

Who ewhet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:

4

That they may shoot fin secret at the perfect: gsuddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.

5

They hencourage themselves in an evil 1matter: they commune 2of laying snares *privily; they isay, Who shall see them?

6

They jsearch out iniquities; 3they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is kdeep.

7

But lGod shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly 4shall they be wounded.

8

So they mshall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all nthat see them shall oflee away.

9

And pall men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall qwisely consider of his doing.

10

The rrighteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
