WhyH4100 standH5975 you afarH7350 off, O LORD?H3068 why hideH5956 you yourself in timesH6256 of trouble?H6869
The wickedH7563 in his prideH1346 does persecuteH1814 the poor:H6041 let them be takenH8610 in the devicesH4209 that they have imagined.H2803
For the wickedH7563 boastsH1984 of his heart'sH5315 desire,H8378 and blessesH1288 the covetous,H1214 whom the LORDH3068 abhors.H5006
The wicked,H7563 through the prideH1363 of his countenance,H639 will not seekH1875 after GodH430: God is not in allH3605 his thoughts.H4209
His waysH1870 are alwaysH3605 H6256 grievous;H2342 your judgmentsH4941 are farH5048 aboveH4791 out of his sight:H5048 as for allH3605 his enemies,H6887 he puffsH6315 at them.
He has saidH559 in his heart,H3820 I shall not be moved:H4131 for I shall neverH1755 be in adversity.H7451
His mouthH6310 is fullH4390 of cursingH423 and deceitH4820 and fraud:H8496 underH8478 his tongueH3956 is mischiefH5999 and vanity.H205
He sitsH3427 in the lurkingH3993 places of the villages:H2691 in the secretH4565 places does he murderH2026 the innocent:H5355 his eyesH5869 are privatelyH6845 setH6845 against the poor.H2489
He lies in waitH693 secretlyH4565 as a lionH738 in his den:H5520 he lies in waitH693 to catchH2414 the poor:H6041 he does catchH2414 the poor,H6041 when he drawsH4900 him into his net.H7568
He crouches,H1794 and humblesH7817 himself, that the poorH2489 may fallH5307 by his strongH6099 ones.
He has saidH559 in his heart,H3820 GodH410 has forgotten:H7911 he hidesH5641 his face;H6440 he will neverH1074 H5331 seeH7200 it.
Arise,H6965 O LORD;H3068 O God,H410 liftH5375 up your hand:H3027 forgetH7911 not the humble.H6041
WhyH5921 H4100 does the wickedH7563 scornH5006 God?H430 he has saidH559 in his heart,H3820 You will not requireH1875 it.
You have seenH7200 it; for you beholdH5027 mischiefH5999 and spite,H3708 to requiteH5414 it with your hand:H3027 the poorH2489 commitsH5800 himself to you; you are the helperH5826 of the fatherless.H3490
BreakH7665 you the armH2220 of the wickedH7563 and the evilH7451 man: seekH1875 out his wickednessH7562 till you findH4672 none.H1077
The LORDH3068 is KingH4428 for everH5769 and ever:H5703 the heathenH1471 are perishedH6 out of his land.H776
LORD,H3068 you have heardH8085 the desireH8378 of the humble:H6041 you will prepareH3559 their heart,H3820 you will cause your earH241 to hear:H7181
To judgeH8199 the fatherlessH3490 and the oppressed,H1790 that the manH582 of the earthH776 may noH1077 moreH3254 H5750 oppress.H6206
