10 Why, O Lord, do you stand kfar away?
let them nbe caught in the schemes that they have devised.
3 For the wicked oboasts of the desires of his soul,
all his thoughts are, r“There is no God.”
your judgments are on high, sout of his sight;
as for all his foes, he tpuffs at them.
6 He usays in his heart, “I shall not be moved;
throughout all generations I vshall not meet adversity.”
in chiding places he murders the innocent.
His eyes stealthily watch for the helpless;
he flurks that he may seize the poor;
he seizes the poor when he draws him into his gnet.
and fall by his might.
lforget not the afflicted.
13 Why does the wicked mrenounce God
and say in his heart, “You will not ncall to account”?
14 But you do see, for you onote mischief and vexation,
that you may take it into your hands;
to you the helpless pcommits himself;
you have been qthe helper of the fatherless.
15 rBreak the arm of the wicked and evildoer;
scall his wickedness to account till you find none.
16 tThe Lord is king forever and ever;
the unations perish from his land.
you will vstrengthen their heart; you will incline your ear
so that yman who is of the earth may strike terror no more.
