Lord, why are you so far away? Why do you hide when there is trouble?
Proudly the wicked chase down those who suffer. Let them be caught in their own traps.
They brag about the things they want. They bless the greedy but hate the Lord.
The wicked people are too proud. They do not look for God; there is no room for God in their thoughts.
They always succeed. They are far from keeping your laws; they make fun of their enemies.
They say to themselves, "Nothing bad will ever happen to me; I will never be ruined."
Their mouths are full of curses, lies, and threats; they use their tongues for sin and evil.
