|1 For the choir director. A Psalm of David. Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint; Preserve my life from dread of the enemy.||1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.||1 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint: Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.||1 Unto the end, a psalm for David. Hear, O God, my prayer, when I make supplication to thee : deliver my soul from the fear of the enemy.||1 To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. Hear, O God, my voice, in my meditation, From the fear of an enemy Thou keepest my life,||2 Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers, From the tumult of those who do iniquity,||2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:||2 Hide me from the secret counsel of evil-doers, From the tumult of the workers of iniquity;||2 Thou hast protected me from the assembly of the malignant; from the multitude of the workers of iniquity.||2 Hidest me from the secret counsel of evil doers, From the tumult of workers of iniquity.||3 Who have sharpened their tongue like a sword. They aimed bitter speech as their arrow,||3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:||3 Who have whet their tongue like a sword, And have aimed their arrows, even bitter words,||3 For they have whetted their tongues like a sword; they have bent their bow a bitter thing,||3 Who sharpened as a sword their tongue, They directed their arrow -- a bitter word.||4 To shoot from concealment at the blameless; Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.||4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.||4 That they may shoot in secret places at the perfect: Suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.||4 to shoot in secret the undefiled.||4 To shoot in secret places the perfect, Suddenly they shoot him, and fear not.||5 They hold fast to themselves an evil purpose; They talk of laying snares secretly; They say, "Who can see them?"||5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?||5 They encourage themselves in an evil purpose; They commune of laying snares privily; They say, Who will see them?||5 They will shoot at him on a sudden, and will not fear: they are resolute in wickedness. They have talked of hiding snares; they have said: Who shall see them?||5 They strengthen for themselves an evil thing, They recount of the hiding of snares, They have said, 'Who doth look at it?'||NASB||KJV||ASV||DRB||YLT|
|6 They devise injustices, saying, "We are ready with a well-conceived plot"; For the inward thought and the heart of a man are deep.||6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.||6 They search out iniquities; We have accomplished,'say they , a diligent search: And the inward thought and the heart of every one is deep.||6 They have searched after iniquities: they have failed in their search. Man shall come to a deep heart:||6 They search out perverse things, 'We perfected a searching search,' And the inward part of man, and the heart are deep.||7 But God will shoot at them with an arrow; Suddenly they will be wounded.||7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.||7 But God will shoot at them; With an arrow suddenly shall they be wounded.||7 and God shall be exalted. The arrows of children are their wounds:||7 And God doth shoot them with an arrow, Sudden have been their wounds,||8 So they will make him stumble; Their own tongue is against them; All who see them will shake the head.||8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.||8 So they shall be made to stumble, their own tongue being against them: All that see them shall wag the head.||8 and their tongues against them are made weak. All that saw them were troubled;||8 And they cause him to stumble, Against them is their own tongue, Every looker on them fleeth away.||9 Then all men will fear, And they will declare the work of God, And will consider what He has done.||9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.||9 And all men shall fear; And they shall declare the work of God, And shall wisely consider of his doing.||9 and every man was afraid. And they declared the works of God: and understood his doings.||9 And all men fear, and declare the work of God, And His deed they have considered wisely.||10 The righteous man will be glad in the LORD and will take refuge in Him; And all the upright in heart will glory.||10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.||10 The righteous shall be glad in Jehovah, and shall take refuge in him; And all the upright in heart shall glory.||10 The just shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall hope in him: and all the upright in heart shall be praised.||10 The righteous doth rejoice in Jehovah, And hath trusted in Him, And boast themselves do all the upright of heart!|
