Why hidest thou thyself ain times of trouble?
3 For the wicked boasteth of his †heart’s desire,
And ||blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth.
4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after dGod:
fThy judgments are far above out of his sight:
As for all his enemies, ghe puffeth at them.
nIn the secret places doth he murder the innocent:
He lieth in wait to catch the poor:
He doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into shis net.
11 hHe hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten:
Forget not the ||humble.
13 Wherefore doth the wicked ycontemn God?
aTo requite it with thy hand:
cThou art the helper of the fatherless.
