He breaketh the mighty -- no searching! And He appointeth others in their stead.
Therefore He knoweth their works, And He hath overturned by night, And they are bruised.
As wicked He hath stricken them, In the place of beholders.
Because that against right They have turned aside from after Him, And none of His ways have considered wisely,
To cause to come in unto Him The cry of the poor, And the cry of the afflicted He heareth.
And He giveth rest, and who maketh wrong? And hideth the face, and who beholdeth it? And in reference to a nation and to a man, [It is] the same.
From the reigning of a profane man, From the snares of a people;
For unto God hath any said: `I have taken away, I do not corruptly,
Besides [that which] I see, shew Thou me, If iniquity I have done -- I do not add?'
By thee doth He recompense, That thou hast refused -- That thou dost choose, and not I? And what thou hast known, speak.
Let men of heart say to me, And a wise man is hearkening to me.
