Psalms 94

The  Lord Implored to Avenge His People.

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

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

12 Blessed is the man whom ab You chasten, O
Heb  Yah
 Lord,
And ad whom You teach out of Your law;
13 That You may grant him ae relief from the af days of adversity,
Until ag a pit is dug for the wicked.
14 For ah the  Lord will not abandon His people,
Nor will He ai forsake His inheritance.
15 For
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.
16 Who will an stand up for me against evildoers?
Who will take his stand for me ao against those who do wickedness?

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