Psalm 10

Arise, Lord! Lift up Your hand, O God.

Do not forget the helpless

Why does the wicked man revile God?

Why does he say to himself,

‘He won’t call me to account’?

 

 

But You, O God, do see trouble and grief;

You consider it to take it in hand.

The victim commits himself to You;

You are the helper of the fatherless.

Break the arm of the wicked and evil man;

Call him to account for his wickedness

That would not be found out.

 

 

The Lord is King for ever and ever;

The nations will perish from His land.

You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted;

You encourage them, and You listen to their cry,

Defending the fatherless and the oppressed,

In order that man, who is of the earth,

May terrify no more.

 

(verses 12-18)
