Arise, O LORD! Punish the wicked, O God! Do not forget the helpless!
Why do the wicked get away with cursing God? How can they think, "God will never call us to account"?
But you do see the trouble and grief they cause. You take note of it and punish them. The helpless put their trust in you. You are the defender of orphans.
Break the arms of these wicked, evil people! Go after them until the last one is destroyed!
