Psalm 10:1-6

BBE 1 Why do you keep far away, O Lord? why are you not to be seen in times of trouble? NIV 1 Why, O LORD, do you stand far off ? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? BBE 2 The evil-doer in his pride is cruel to the poor; let him be taken by the tricks of his invention. NIV 2 In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises. BBE 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. NIV 3 He boasts of the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the LORD. BBE 4 The evil-doer in his pride says, God will not make a search. All his thoughts are, There is no God. NIV 4 In his pride the wicked does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God. BBE 5 His ways are ever fixed; your decisions are higher than he may see: as for his haters, they are as nothing to him. NIV 5 His ways are always prosperous; he is haughty and your laws are far from him; he sneers at all his enemies. BBE 6 He has said in his heart, I will not be moved: through all generations I will never be in trouble. NIV 6 He says to himself, "Nothing will shake me; I'll always be happy and never have trouble."
