10:1 Why do you stand far off, Yahweh?

Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

10:2 In arrogance, the wicked hunt down the weak.

They are caught in the schemes that they devise.

10:3 For the wicked boasts of his heart’s cravings.

He blesses the greedy, and condemns Yahweh.

10:4 The wicked, in the pride of his face,

has no room in his thoughts for God.

10:5 His ways are prosperous at all times.

He is haughty, and your laws are far from his sight.

As for all his adversaries, he sneers at them.

10:6 He says in his heart, “I shall not be shaken.

For generations I shall have no trouble.”

10:7 His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, and oppression.

Under his tongue is mischief and iniquity.

10:8 He lies in wait near the villages.

From ambushes, he murders the innocent.

His eyes are secretly set against the helpless.

10:9 He lurks in secret as a lion in his ambush.

He lies in wait to catch the helpless.

He catches the helpless, when he draws him in his net.

10:10 The helpless are crushed.

They collapse.

They fall under his strength.

10:11 He says in his heart, “God has forgotten.

He hides his face.

He will never see it.”

10:12 Arise, Yahweh!

God, lift up your hand!

Don’t forget the helpless.

10:13 Why does the wicked person condemn God,

and say in his heart, “God won’t call me into account?”

10:14 But you do see trouble and grief.

You consider it to take it into your hand.

You help the victim and the fatherless.

10:15 Break the arm of the wicked.

As for the evil man, seek out his wickedness until you find none.

10:16 Yahweh is King forever and ever!

The nations will perish out of his land.

10:17 Yahweh, you have heard the desire of the humble.

You will prepare their heart.

You will cause your ear to hear,

10:18 to judge the fatherless and the oppressed,

that man who is of the earth may terrify no more.
