Isn't God in the heights of heaven; see how high the topmost stars are?
You say: "What does God know? Can he judge through thick clouds?
Clouds conceal him so he can't see while he walks on heaven's rim."
Will you keep the ancient way traveled by sinful persons,
who were snatched prematurely when a river flooded their foundations,
who say to God, "Turn away from us; what can the Almighty do to us?"
Yet he filled their houses with good things; a sinner's logic is beyond me.
The righteous see and rejoice; the innocent mock them:
our enemies are certainly cut off; fire will devour what's left of them.
