Salme 64

Gud straffer ondskab

1Til korlederen: En sang af David.

Hør min bøn, Gud, midt i min nød.
    Red mig fra fjendernes angreb.
Skærm mig mod deres skumle planer,
    beskyt mig mod deres ondskabsfulde list.
Deres tunger er som skarpe sværd,
    deres ord som giftige pile.
De sigter på de uskyldige fra deres baghold,
    de skyder dem ned uden skrupler.
De mødes for at ægge hinanden til ondskab
    og planlægge, hvor de skal sætte deres fælder.
        „Ingen opdager noget,” siger de selvsikkert.
De udklækker grusomme planer,
    som de hemmeligt fører ud i livet.
        Et menneskes tanker ligger skjult i sindet.
Men Gud vil selv ramme dem med sin straf,
    pludselig bliver de gennemboret af hans pile.
Deres egne ord vil fælde dem,
    og alle, som oplever deres fald,
vil ryste på hovedet i foragt
10     og fyldes af ærefrygt for Gud.
De vil forkynde Guds store undere
    og forstå hans retfærdige dom.
11 De gudfrygtige skal glæde sig over Gud
    og søge tilflugt hos ham.
        Alle de retskafne skal glæde sig.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 64

Prayer for Protection from Secret Enemies.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1Hear my voice, O God, in my [a]complaint;
Guard my life from the terror of the enemy.

Hide me from the secret counsel and conspiracy of the ungodly,
From the scheming of those who do wrong,

Who have sharpened their tongues like a sword.
They aim venomous words as arrows,

To shoot from ambush at the blameless [one];
Suddenly they shoot at him, without fear.

They encourage themselves in [their pursuit of] an evil agenda;
They talk of laying snares secretly;
They say, “Who will discover us?”

They devise acts of injustice, saying,
“We are ready with a well-conceived plan.”
For the inward thought and the heart of a man are deep (mysterious, unsearchable).


But God will shoot them with an [unexpected] arrow;
Suddenly they will be wounded.

So they will be caused to stumble;
Their own tongue is against them;
All who gaze at them will shake the head [in scorn].

Then all men will fear [God’s judgment];
They will declare the work of God,
And they will consider and wisely acknowledge what He has done.
10 
The righteous will rejoice in the Lord and take refuge in Him;
All the upright in heart will glory and offer praise.
