Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Why do you keep far away, O Lord? why are you not to be seen in times of trouble? 1 Why, O LORD, do you stand far off ? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
2 The evil-doer in his pride is cruel to the poor; let him be taken by the tricks of his invention. 2 In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises.
3 For the evil-doer is lifted up because of the purpose of his heart, and he whose mind is fixed on wealth is turned away from the Lord, saying evil against him. 3 He boasts of the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the LORD.
4 The evil-doer in his pride says, God will not make a search. 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 ever fixed; your decisions are higher than he may see: as for his haters, they are as nothing to him. 5 His ways are always prosperous; he is haughty and your laws are far from him; he sneers at all his enemies.
6 He has said in his heart, I will not be moved: through all generations I will never be in trouble. 6 He says to himself, "Nothing will shake me; I'll always be happy and never have trouble."
