  1 Why, O Jehovah, do You stand far off? Why do You hide Yourself in times of distress?

  2 Arrogantly the wicked hotly pursue the poor - May they be caught in the plots that they devise!

  3 For the wicked man boasts of the desire of his soul, And the rapacious man curses, even despises, Jehovah.

  4 The wicked man, according to the haughtiness of his countenance, Says, He will not require it; All his thoughts are this: There is no God!

  5 His ways succeed at all times; Your judgments are on high, out of his sight; As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them.

  6 He has said in his heart, I will not be shaken; I will be in no trouble forever.

  7 His mouth is full of curses and of deceit and oppression; Under his tongue are mischief and iniquity.

  8 He sits in the ambushes of the open villages; In hidden places he murders the innocent; His eyes secretly watch for the unfortunate.

  9 He lurks in secret like a lion in its covert; He lurks ready to seize the poor; He seizes the poor, drawing them up in his net.

10 He stoops, he crouches, And the unfortunate fall by his mighty claws.

11 He has said in his heart, God has forgotten; He has hidden His face; He will never see this.

12 Arise, O Jehovah; O God, lift up Your hand. Do not forget the poor.

13 Why does the wicked man despise God And say in his heart, You will not require it?

14 You do see! For You observe mischief and vexation, To requite it with Your own hand. To You the unfortunate one commits his cause; You have been the help of the orphan.

15 Break the arm of the wicked man and the evil doer; Seek out his wickedness until You find no more.

16 Jehovah is King forever and ever; The nations have perished from His land.

17 You have heard the desire of the lowly, O Jehovah; You will establish their heart; You will cause Your ears to listen,

18 In order to execute justice for the orphan and the oppressed one, That the mortal man of the earth may terrorize no longer.
