Psalm 94:5–10 — The New International Version (NIV)

They crush your people, Lord;

they oppress your inheritance.

They slay the widow and the foreigner;

they murder the fatherless.

They say, “The Lord does not see;

the God of Jacob takes no notice.”

Take notice, you senseless ones among the people;

you fools, when will you become wise?

Does he who fashioned the ear not hear?

Does he who formed the eye not see?

10 Does he who disciplines nations not punish?

Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge?

Psalm 94:5–10 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

They break in pieces thy people, O Lord,

And afflict thine heritage.

They slay the widow and the stranger,

And murder the fatherless.

Yet they say, The Lord shall not see,

Neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

Understand, ye brutish among the people:

And ye fools, when will ye be wise?

He that planted the ear, shall he not hear?

He that formed the eye, shall he not see?

10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct?

He that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

Psalm 94:5–10 — New Living Translation (NLT)

They crush your people, Lord,

hurting those you claim as your own.

They kill widows and foreigners

and murder orphans.

“The Lord isn’t looking,” they say,

“and besides, the God of Israel doesn’t care.”

Think again, you fools!

When will you finally catch on?

Is he deaf—the one who made your ears?

Is he blind—the one who formed your eyes?

10 He punishes the nations—won’t he also punish you?

He knows everything—doesn’t he also know what you are doing?

Psalm 94:5–10 — The New King James Version (NKJV)

They break in pieces Your people, O Lord,

And murder the fatherless.

Nor does the God of Jacob understand.”

Understand, you senseless among the people;

And you fools, when will you be wise?

He who formed the eye, shall He not see?

10 He who instructs the nations, shall He not correct,

He who teaches man knowledge?

Lord, they crush your people

and make your children suffer.

You stupid ones among the people, pay attention.

You fools, when will you understand?

Can’t the creator of ears hear?

Can’t the maker of eyes see?

10 Won’t the one who corrects nations punish you?

Doesn’t the teacher of people know everything?

They break in pieces thy people, O Jehovah,

And afflict thy heritage.

Neither will the God of Jacob consider.

Consider, ye brutish among the people;

And ye fools, when will ye be wise?

Even he that teacheth man knowledge?

Understand, ye brutish among the people; and ye fools, when will ye be wise? He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? He that formed the eye, shall he not see? 10 He that instructeth the nations, shall not he correct—he that teacheth man knowledge?

They crush your people, O Lord

They make those who belong to you suffer.

The God of Jacob doesn’t even pay attention to it.” 

Pay attention, you stupid people! 

When will you become wise, you fools? 

God created ears. 

Do you think he can’t hear? 

He formed eyes. 

Do you think he can’t see? 

10 He disciplines nations. 

Do you think he can’t punish? 

He teaches people. 

Do you think he doesn’t know anything?

the One who formed the eye not see?

the One who teaches man knowledge—

does He not discipline?

You pay attention, O brutes among the people.

the one who teaches humankind knowledge?
