Lord, why are you so far away? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
An evil person is proud and hunts down those who are weak. He catches weak people by making clever plans.
He brags about what his heart longs for. He speaks well of those who always want more. He attacks the LORD with his words.
Because he is proud, that evil person doesn't turn to the Lord. There is no room for God in any of his thoughts.
Everything always goes well for him. So he is proud. He doesn't want to have anything to do with God's laws. He makes fun of all of his enemies.
He says to himself, "I will always be secure. I will always be happy. I'll never have any trouble."
