Psalm 10:1-6 GNT

1 Why are you so far away, O Lord? Why do you hide yourself when we are in trouble?
2 The wicked are proud and persecute the poor; catch them in the traps they have made.
3 The wicked are proud of their evil desires; the greedy curse and reject the Lord.
4 The wicked do not care about the Lord; in their pride they think that God doesn't matter.
5 The wicked succeed in everything. They cannot understand God's judgments; they sneer at their enemies.
6 They say to themselves, "We will never fail; we will never be in trouble."
