Psalm 64 KJV

1 Hear my voice, O God, 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 whet 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:a they commune of laying snares privily ; they say , Who shall see them?
