Chapter 10

PSA.10:1 Why do You stand afar off, O LORD? Why do You hide in times of trouble?
PSA.10:2 The wicked in his pride persecutes the poor; Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised.
PSA.10:3 For the wicked boasts of his heart’s desire; He blesses the greedy and renounces the LORD.
PSA.10:4 The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts.
PSA.10:5 His ways are always prospering; Your judgments are far above, out of his sight; As for all his enemies, he sneers at them.
PSA.10:6 He has said in his heart, “I shall not be moved; I shall never be in adversity.”
PSA.10:7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and oppression; Under his tongue is trouble and iniquity.
PSA.10:8 He sits in the lurking places of the villages; In the secret places he murders the innocent; His eyes are secretly fixed on the helpless.
PSA.10:9 He lies in wait secretly, as a lion in his den; He lies in wait to catch the poor; He catches the poor when he draws him into his net.
PSA.10:10 So he crouches, he lies low, That the helpless may fall by his strength.
PSA.10:11 He has said in his heart, “God has forgotten; He hides His face; He will never see.”
PSA.10:12 Arise, O LORD! O God, lift up Your hand! Do not forget the humble.
PSA.10:13 Why do the wicked renounce God? He has said in his heart, “You will not require an account.”
PSA.10:14 But You have seen, for You observe trouble and grief, To repay it by Your hand. The helpless commits himself to You; You are the helper of the fatherless.
PSA.10:15 Break the arm of the wicked and the evil man; Seek out his wickedness until You find none.
PSA.10:16 The LORD is King forever and ever; The nations have perished out of His land.
PSA.10:17 LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear,
PSA.10:18 To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, That the man of the earth may oppress no more.
