American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Why standest thou afar off, O Jehovah? Why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? 1 Why, O LORD, do you stand far off ? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
2 In the pride of the wicked the poor is hotly pursued; Let them be taken in the devices that they have conceived. 2 In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises.
3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, And the covetous renounceth, [yea], contemneth Jehovah. 3 He boasts of the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the LORD.
4 The wicked, in the pride of his countenance, [saith], He will not require [it]. All his thoughts are, There is no God. 4 In his pride the wicked does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
5 His ways are firm at all times; Thy judgments are far above out of his sight: As for all his adversaries, he puffeth at them. 5 His ways are always prosperous; he is haughty and your laws are far from him; he sneers at all his enemies.
6 He saith in his heart, I shall not be moved; To all generations I shall not be in adversity. 6 He says to himself, "Nothing will shake me; I'll always be happy and never have trouble."
