Protect my life from my enemies’ threats.
from this gang of wrongdoers.
and aim their bitter words like arrows.
attacking suddenly and fearlessly.
and plan how to set their traps in secret.
“Who will ever notice?” they ask.
“We have devised the perfect plan!”
Yes, the human heart and mind are cunning.
suddenly striking them down.
and all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.
they will proclaim the mighty acts of God
and realize all the amazing things he does.
and find shelter in him.
And those who do what is right
will praise him.
