swords and arrows

Psalm 64:1-4 (JDV)

Psalm 64:1 God, listen to my voice when I keep babbling. Protect my life from the terror of the enemy.
Psalm 64:2 Hide me from the scheming of wicked people, from the mob of evildoers,
Psalm 64:3 who sharpen their tongues like swords and aim bitter words like arrows,
Psalm 64:4 shooting from concealed places at the blameless. They shoot at him suddenly and are not afraid.

swords and arrows

David describes the words of his enemies as swords and arrows, aimed at him — even from concealed places, but always intending to do him harm. By contrast, David’s words are addressed to God, from whom he expects deliverance and justice.

Lord, protect us from the swords and arrows of your enemies.
