They pour out arrogant words; all the evildoers are full of boasting.
They crush your people, LORD; they oppress your inheritance.
They slay the widow and the foreigner; they murder the fatherless.
They say, “The LORD does not see; the God of Jacob takes no notice.”
Take notice, you senseless ones among the people; you fools, when will you become wise?
Does he who fashioned the ear not hear? Does he who formed the eye not see?
Does he who disciplines nations not punish? Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge?
The LORD knows all human plans; he knows that they are futile.
Blessed is the one you discipline, LORD, the one you teach from your law;
you grant them relief from days of trouble, till a pit is dug for the wicked.
For the LORD will not reject his people; he will never forsake his inheritance.
