They die suddenly in the middle of the night. People have seizures and pass away. Mighty people are taken away but not by human hands.
God's eyes are on a person's ways. He sees all his steps.
There's no darkness or deep shadow where troublemakers can hide.
He doesn't have to set a time for a person in order to bring him to divine judgment.
He breaks mighty people into pieces without examining them and puts others in their places.
He knows what they do, so he overthrows them at night, and they're crushed.
In return for their evil, he strikes them in public,
because they turned away from following him and didn't consider any of his ways.
They forced the poor to cry out to him, and he hears the cry of those who suffer.
If he keeps quiet, who can condemn him? If he hides his face, who can see him whether it is a nation or a single person?
[He does this] so that godless people cannot rule and so that they cannot trap people.
