O LORD, the God to whom vengeance belongs, O God of vengeance, let your glorious justice be seen!
Arise, O judge of the earth. Sentence the proud to the penalties they deserve.
How long, O LORD? How long will the wicked be allowed to gloat?
Hear their arrogance! How these evildoers boast!
They oppress your people, LORD, hurting those you love.
They kill widows and foreigners and murder orphans.
