Woe1 to you, O destroyer, you who have not been destroyed! Woe to you, O traitor, you who have not been betrayed! When you stop destroying, you will be destroyed;2 when you stop betraying, you will be betrayed.32
O LORD, be gracious4 to us; we long for you. Be our strength5 every morning, our salvation6 in time of distress.73
At the thunder of your voice,8 the peoples flee;9 when you rise up,10 the nations scatter.
Your plunder,11 O nations, is harvested12 as by young locusts;13 like a swarm of locusts men pounce on it.
The LORD is exalted,14 for he dwells on high;15 he will fill Zion with justice16 and righteousness.176
He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation18 and wisdom and knowledge; the fear19 of the LORD is the key to this treasure.a20
