Why standest Thou afar off, O LORD? Why hidest Thou Thyself in times of trouble?
The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor; let them be caught in the devices that they have contrived.
For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous whom the LORD abhorreth.
The wicked, in the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God; God is not in all his thoughts.
His ways are always grievous; Thy judgments are far above, out of his sight; as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
He hath said in his heart, "I shall not be moved, for I shall never be in adversity."
His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud; under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
