Hide Me From The Wicked (Psalm 64:1-10)Phillip Stuckey, November 21, 2021
Part of the Exposition of the Psalms series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Have you ever had someone talk about you behind your back? It is hurtful and frustrating and almost impossible to deal with. When this happens, what should we do? In Psalm 64, David reminds us that the best thing we can do is seek refuge in God.

Psalm 64 (Listen)
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
64:1 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;
preserve my life from dread of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked,
from the throng of evildoers,
3 who whet their tongues like swords,
who aim bitter words like arrows,
4 shooting from ambush at the blameless,
shooting at him suddenly and without fear.
5 They hold fast to their evil purpose;
they talk of laying snares secretly,
thinking, “Who can see them?”
6 They search out injustice,
saying, “We have accomplished a diligent search.”
For the inward mind and heart of a man are deep.
7 But God shoots his arrow at them;
they are wounded suddenly.
8 They are brought to ruin, with their own tongues turned against them;
all who see them will wag their heads.
9 Then all mankind fears;
they tell what God has brought about
and ponder what he has done.
10 Let the righteous one rejoice in the LORD
and take refuge in him!
Let all the upright in heart exult!
