Ps 10:1Why, O Jehovah, do You stand far off? / Why do You hide Yourself in times of distress?

Ps 10:2Arrogantly the wicked hotly pursue the poor — / May they be caught in the plots that they devise!

Ps 10:3For the wicked man boasts of the desire of his soul, / And the rapacious man curses, even despises, Jehovah.

Ps 10:4The wicked man, according to the haughtiness of his countenance, / Says, He will not require it; / All his thoughts are this: There is no God!

Ps 10:5His ways succeed at all times; / Your judgments are on high, out of his sight; / As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them.

Ps 10:6He has said in his heart, I will not be shaken; / I will be in no trouble forever.

Ps 10:7His mouth is full of curses and of deceit and oppression; / Under his tongue are mischief and iniquity.

Ps 10:8He sits in the ambushes of the open villages; / In hidden places he murders the innocent; / His eyes secretly watch for the unfortunate.

Ps 10:9He 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.

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

Ps 10:11He has said in his heart, God has forgotten; / He has hidden His face; He will never see this.

Ps 10:12Arise, O Jehovah; O God, lift up Your hand. / Do not forget the poor.

Ps 10:13Why does the wicked man despise God / And say in his heart, You will not require it?

Ps 10:14You 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.

Ps 10:15Break the arm of the wicked man and the evildoer; / Seek out his wickedness until You find no more.

Ps 10:16Jehovah is King forever and ever; / The nations have perished from His land.

Ps 10:17You have heard the desire of the lowly, O Jehovah; / You will establish their heart; You will cause Your ears to listen,

Ps 10:18In order to execute justice for the orphan and the oppressed one, / That the mortal man of the earth may terrorize no longer.
