Psalm 10


A Prayer for the Overthrow of the Wicked.

Psalm 10:1   Why do You stand afar off, O LORD? Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?
Psalm 10:2   In pride the wicked hotly pursue the afflicted; Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised.
Psalm 10:3   For the wicked boasts of his heart's desire, And the greedy man curses and spurns the LORD.
Psalm 10:4   The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him. All his thoughts are, "There is no God."
Psalm 10:5   His ways prosper at all times; Your judgments are on high, out of his sight; As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them.
Psalm 10:6   He says to himself, "I will not be moved; Throughout all generations I will not be in adversity."
Psalm 10:7   His mouth is full of curses and deceit and oppression; Under his tongue is mischief and wickedness.
Psalm 10:8   He sits in the lurking places of the villages; In the hiding places he kills the innocent; His eyes stealthily watch for the unfortunate.
Psalm 10:9   He lurks in a hiding place as a lion in his lair; He lurks to catch the afflicted; He catches the afflicted when he draws him into his net.
Psalm 10:10   He crouches, he bows down, And the unfortunate fall by his mighty ones.
Psalm 10:11   He says to himself, "God has forgotten; He has hidden His face; He will never see it."
Psalm 10:12   Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up Your hand. Do not forget the afflicted.
Psalm 10:13   Why has the wicked spurned God? He has said to himself, "You will not require it."
Psalm 10:14   You have seen it, for You have beheld mischief and vexation to take it into Your hand. The unfortunate commits himself to You; You have been the helper of the orphan.
Psalm 10:15   Break the arm of the wicked and the evildoer, Seek out his wickedness until You find none.
Psalm 10:16   The LORD is King forever and ever; Nations have perished from His land.
Psalm 10:17   O LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear
Psalm 10:18   To vindicate the orphan and the oppressed, So that man who is of the earth will no longer cause terror.
