Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

64:3 whet their tongue. The tongue with its bitter words is compared to a sword, to arrows, and to a whetted razor. The tongue can be “a fire, a world of iniquity,” set “on fire of hell” (James 3:6). A major weapon of the enemies of God is the use of lying words, deceitful words, angry words. The main defensive weapon is the Word, with its words of truth and peace.
