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.

Psalm 64

Prayer for Deliverance from Secret Enemies.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1Hear my voice, O God, in my [a]complaint;
Preserve my life from dread of the enemy.
Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers,
From the tumult of those who do iniquity,
Who have sharpened their tongue like a sword.
They aimed bitter speech as their arrow,
To shoot [b]from concealment at the blameless;
Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.
They [c]hold fast to themselves an evil purpose;
They [d]talk of laying snares secretly;
They say, “Who can see them?”
They [e]devise injustices, saying,
“We are [f]ready with a well-conceived plot”;
For the [g]inward thought and the heart of a man are [h]deep.

But God [i]will shoot at them with an arrow;
Suddenly [j]they will be wounded.
So [k]they [l]will make him stumble;
Their own tongue is against them;
All who see them will shake the head.
Then all men [m]will fear,
And they [n]will declare the work of God,
And [o]will consider [p]what He has done.
10 The righteous man will be glad in the Lord and will take refuge in Him;
And all the upright in heart will glory.
