Why are you so distant, LORD? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
The wicked person arrogantly pursues oppressed people. He will be caught in the schemes that he planned.
The wicked person boasts about his selfish desires. He blesses robbers, but he curses the LORD.
He turns up his nose [and says], "God doesn't care." His every thought [concludes], "There is no God."
He always seems to succeed. Your judgments are beyond his understanding. He spits at all his opponents.
He says to himself, "Nothing can shake me. I'll never face any trouble."
