Psalms 64:3-4


64:3 They 1  sharpen their tongues like a sword;

they aim their arrow, a slanderous charge, 2 

64:4 in order to shoot down the innocent 3  in secluded places.

They shoot at him suddenly and are unafraid of retaliation. 4 

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

2 tn Heb “a bitter word.”

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

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