A Prayer for the Overthrow of the Wicked.1 Why a do You stand afar off, O Lord?
Why b do You hide ▼
▼ Or Your eyesYourself in times of trouble?
2 In d pride the wicked ▼
▼ Lit burnhotly pursue the afflicted;
▼ Or They will be caughtLet them be g caught in the plots which they have devised.
3 For the wicked h boasts of his i heart’s desire,
▼ Or blesses the greedy manthe greedy man curses and k spurns the Lord.
4 The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance l does not seek Him.
All his ▼
▼ Or plotsthoughts are, n “There is no God.”
5 His ways ▼
▼ Lit are strong, p prosper at all times;
Your judgments are on high q out of his sight;
As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them.
6 He says to himself r “I will not be moved;
▼ Lit ToThroughout all generations t I will not be in adversity.”
7 His u mouth is full of curses and deceit and v oppression;
w Under his tongue is mischief and wickedness.
8 He sits in the x lurking places of the villages;
In the hiding places he y kills the innocent;
His eyes ▼
▼ Lit lie in waitstealthily watch for the ▼ , ab unfortunate.
9 He lurks in a hiding place as ac a lion in his ▼
▼ Or thicketlair;
He ae lurks to catch af the afflicted;
He catches the afflicted when he draws him into his ag net.
10 He ▼
▼ Or is crushedcrouches, he ▼
▼ Or is bowed downbows down,
And the ▼ unfortunate fall ▼
▼ Or into his clawsby his mighty ones.
11 He al says to himself, “God has forgotten;
He has hidden His face; He will never see it.”
12 Arise, O Lord; O God am lift up Your hand.
an Do not forget the afflicted.
13 Why has the wicked ao spurned God?
He has said to himself, “You will not require it.”
14 You have seen it, for You have beheld ap mischief and vexation to ▼
▼ Lit put, givetake it into Your hand.
The ▼ , as unfortunate commits himself to You;
You have been the at helper of the orphan.
15 au Break the arm of the wicked and the evildoer,
▼ Or May You seek, aw Seek out his wickedness until You find none.
16 The Lord is ax King forever and ever;
ay Nations have perished from His land.
17 O Lord, You have heard the az desire of the ▼
▼ Or afflictedhumble;
You will bb strengthen their heart bc You will incline Your ear
18 To ▼
▼ Lit judgevindicate the be orphan and the bf oppressed,
So that man who is of the earth will no longer cause bg terror.
