Salmos 64

Al director musical. Salmo de David.

1Escucha, oh Dios, la voz de mi queja;
    protégeme del temor al enemigo.
Escóndeme de esa pandilla de impíos,
    de esa caterva de malhechores.
Afilan su lengua como espada
    y lanzan como flechas palabras ponzoñosas.
Emboscados, disparan contra el inocente;
    le tiran sin temor y sin aviso.

Unos a otros se animan en sus planes impíos,
    calculan cómo tender sus trampas;
    y hasta dicen: «¿Quién las verá?»
Maquinan injusticias, y dicen:
    «¡Hemos tramado un plan perfecto!»
¡Cuán incomprensibles son
    la mente y los pensamientos humanos!

Pero Dios les disparará sus flechas,
    y sin aviso caerán heridos.
Su propia lengua será su ruina,
    y quien los vea se burlará de ellos.

La humanidad entera sentirá temor:
    proclamará las proezas de Dios
    y meditará en sus obras.
10 Que se regocijen en el Señor los justos;
    que busquen refugio en él;
    ¡que lo alaben todos los de recto corazón!

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.
