12  hArt thou not from everlasting,

O Lord my God, mine Holy One? iwe shall not die.

O Lord, kthou hast ordained them for judgment;

And, O mighty God, kthou hast established them for correction.

13  Thou art of purer eyes than to lbehold evil,

And canst not look on ||iniquity:

mWherefore lookest thou upon them mnthat deal treacherously,

And oholdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth pthe man that is more righteous than he?

14  And makest men as ppthe fishes of the sea,

As qthe ||creeping things, that have no ruler over them?

15  rThey take up all of them with sthe angle,

They catch them in their tnet, and gather them in their ||udrag:

Therefore they rejoice and are glad.

16  vTherefore they sacrifice unto their tnet, and vburn incense unto their udrag;

Because by them their portion is fat, and their meat ||plenteous.

17  Shall they therefore empty their tnet,

And not spare continually to slay the nations?
