hy, ADONAI, do you stand at a distance? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
The wicked in their arrogance hunt down the poor, who get caught in the schemes they think up.
For the wicked boasts about his lusts; he blesses greed and despises ADONAI.
Every scheme of the wicked in his arrogance [says], "There is no God, [so] it won't be held against me."
His ways prosper at all times. Your judgments are way up there, so he takes no notice. His adversaries? He scoffs at them all.
In his heart he thinks, "I will never be shaken; I won't meet trouble, not now or ever."
