Psalms 94

The  Lord Implored to Avenge His People.

1O  Lord, God of
Or avenging acts
,
b  vengeance,
God of
Or avenging acts
vengeance
Or has shone forth
,
e  shine forth!
2 f  Rise up, O g  Judge of the earth,
Render recompense h  to the proud.
3How long shall the wicked, O  Lord,
How long shall the i  wicked exult?
4They pour forth words, they j  speak arrogantly;
All who do wickedness k  vaunt themselves.
5They l  crush Your people, O  Lord,
And m  afflict Your heritage.
6They n  slay the widow and the
Or sojourner
stranger
And murder the orphans.
7 p  They have said
Heb  Yah
“The  Lord does not see,
Nor does the God of Jacob pay heed.”

8Pay heed, you r  senseless among the people;
And when will you understand s  stupid ones?
9He who t  planted the ear
Or can
does He not hear?
He who formed the eye
Or can
does He not see?
10He who
Or instructs
,
x  chastens the nations, will He not rebuke,
Even He who y  teaches man knowledge?
11The  Lord z  knows the thoughts of man,
Or For
That they are a mere breath.

12Blessed is the man whom ab  You chasten, O
Heb  Yah
 Lord,
And ad  whom You teach out of Your law;
13That You may grant him ae  relief from the af  days of adversity,
Until ag  a pit is dug for the wicked.
14For ah  the  Lord will not abandon His people,
Nor will He ai  forsake His inheritance.
15For
I.e. administration of justice
,
ak  judgment
Lit will return to righteousness
will again be righteous,
And all the upright in heart
Lit will be after it
will follow it.
16Who will an  stand up for me against evildoers?
Who will take his stand for me ao  against those who do wickedness?

17If ap  the  Lord had not been my help,
My soul would soon have dwelt in the abode of silence.
18If I should say aq  My foot has slipped,”
Your lovingkindness, O  Lord, will hold me up.
19When my anxious thoughts
Or are many
multiply within me,
Your as  consolations delight my soul.
20Can a
Or tribunal
,
au  throne of destruction be allied with You,
One av  which devises
Or trouble, misfortune
mischief by decree?
21They ax  band themselves together against the
Or soul
life of the righteous
And az  condemn
Lit innocent blood
the innocent to death.
22But the  Lord has been my bb  stronghold,
And my God the bc  rock of my refuge.
23He has bd  brought back their wickedness upon them
And will
Or silence
,
bf  destroy them in their evil;
The  Lord our God will
Or silence
destroy them.
