1 Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?
5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved for I shall† never be in adversity.
8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes † are privily set against the poor.
9 He lieth in wait † secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.
11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: * he hideth his face; he will never see it.
12 Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the ∥ humble.
13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it.
14 Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor † committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
16* The Lordis King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
17Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt ∥ prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more ∥ oppress.
