O LORD, God of vengeance, O God of vengeance, appear!
Arise, O Judge of the earth. Give arrogant people what they deserve.
How long, O LORD, will wicked people triumph? How long?
They ramble. They speak arrogantly. All troublemakers brag about themselves.
They crush your people, O LORD. They make those who belong to you suffer.
They kill widows and foreigners, and they murder orphans.
They say, "The LORD doesn't see it. The God of Jacob doesn't even pay attention to it."
Pay attention, you stupid people! When will you become wise, you fools?
God created ears. Do you think he can't hear? He formed eyes. Do you think he can't see?
