O LORD, how long shall I cry , and thou wilt not hear ! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save !
Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.
Therefore the law is slacked , and judgment doth never go forth : for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth .
