Psalms 64:2-4

Context

64:2 Hide me from the plots of evil men,

from the crowd of evildoers. 1 

64:3 They 2  sharpen their tongues like a sword;

they aim their arrow, a slanderous charge, 3 

64:4 in order to shoot down the innocent 4  in secluded places.

They shoot at him suddenly and are unafraid of retaliation. 5 

1 tn Heb “workers of wickedness.”

2 tn Heb “who.” A new sentence was started here in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Heb “a bitter word.”

4 tn The psalmist uses the singular because he is referring to himself here as representative of a larger group.

5 tn Heb “and are unafraid.” The words “of retaliation” are supplied in the translation for clarification.
