Psalm 10:1-7 RSV

1 Why dost thou stand afar off, O LORD? Why dost thou hide thyself in times of trouble?
2 In arrogance the wicked hotly pursue the poor; let them be caught in the schemes which they have devised.
3 For the wicked boasts of the desires of his heart, and the man greedy for gain curses and renounces the LORD.
4 In the pride of his countenance the wicked does not seek him; all his thoughts are, "There is no God."
5 His ways prosper at all times; thy judgments are on high, out of his sight; as for all his foes, he puffs at them.
6 He thinks in his heart, "I shall not be moved; throughout all generations I shall not meet adversity."
7 His mouth is filled with cursing and deceit and oppression; under his tongue are mischief and iniquity.
