Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Lord, why hast thou gone far away? thou despisest us in covenable times in tribulation. (Lord, why hast thou gone so far away? despisest thou us in our time of trouble?) 1 Why, O LORD, do you stand far off ? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
2 While the wicked man waxeth proud, the poor man is burnt; they be taken in the wicked counsels, which they thinked. (While the wicked grow proud, the poor be persecuted; let the wicked be caught in the wicked plans, which they themselves have thought out.) 2 In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises.
3 For why the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul; and the wicked is blessed. The sinner hath stirred the Lord to wrath; (For the sinner glorieth in the desires of his own soul; and he blesseth the wicked, who have stirred the Lord to anger.) 3 He boasts of the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the LORD.
4 after the multitude of his wrath, he shall not seek (after God). God is not in his sight; (And because of the multitude of his pride, he shall not seek after God. Indeed God is not in any of his thoughts;) 4 In his pride the wicked does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
5 his ways be defouled in all time. Thy dooms be taken away from his face; he shall be lord of all his enemies. (his ways be defiled forever. And though thy judgements be far away from him, that is, beyond his grasp; he shall still be lord, or he shall still rule, over all his enemies.) 5 His ways are always prosperous; he is haughty and your laws are far from him; he sneers at all his enemies.
6 For he said in his heart, I shall not be moved, from generation into generation without evil. (For he said in his heart, I shall never be shaken; yea, for all generations, I shall never have any trouble.) 6 He says to himself, "Nothing will shake me; I'll always be happy and never have trouble."
