Why does it have strange spelling?
1 Dauid prayeth for deliuerance, complaining of his enemies. 7 He promiseth himselfe to see such an euident destruction of his enemies, as the righteous shall reioyce at it.
1[To the chiefe musician, a Psalme of Dauid.] Heare my voice, O God, in my praier; preserue my life from feare of the enemie.
2Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked: from the insurrection of the workers of iniquitie:
3Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bowes to shoote their arrowes, euen bitter words:3
Gods chosen: Their benefits.
4That they may shoote in secret at the perfect: suddenly doe they shoote at him, and feare not.
5They incourage themselues in an euill matter: they commune of laying snares priuily; they say, Who shall see them?5
6They search out iniquities, they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of euery one of them, and the heart, is deepe.6
7But God shall shoote at them: with an arrowe, sodenly shall they be wounded.7
8So they shall make their owne tongue to fall vpon themselues: all that see them, shall flee away.
9And all men shall feare, and shall declare the worke of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
10The righteous shalbe glad in the Lord, and shall trust in him; and all the vpright in heart shall glory.
