Psalms 101Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
2In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
who are caught in the schemes he devises.
3He boasts about the cravings of his heart;
he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.
4In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
5His ways are always prosperous;
your laws are rejected by ▼
▼See Septuagint; Hebrew / they are haughty, and your laws are far fromhim;
he sneers at all his enemies.
6He says to himself, ‘Nothing will ever shake me.’
He swears, ‘No one will ever do me harm.’
7His mouth is full of lies and threats;
trouble and evil are under his tongue.
8He lies in wait near the villages;
from ambush he murders the innocent.
His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
9like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
10His victims are crushed, they collapse;
they fall under his strength.
11He says to himself, ‘God will never notice;
he covers his face and never sees.’
12Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
Do not forget the helpless.
13Why does the wicked man revile God?
Why does he say to himself,
‘He won’t call me to account’?
14But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless.
15Break the arm of the wicked man;
call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
that would not otherwise be found out.
16The Lord is King for ever and ever;
the nations will perish from his land.
17You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
18defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
so that mere earthly mortals
will never again strike terror.
