O LORD, the God of vengeance, O God of vengeance, let your glorious justice shine forth!
Arise, O Judge of the earth. Give the proud what they deserve.
How long, O LORD ? How long will the wicked be allowed to gloat?
How long will they speak with arrogance? How long will these evil people boast?
They crush your people, LORD, hurting those you claim as your own.
They kill widows and foreigners and murder orphans.
“The LORD isn’t looking,” they say, “and besides, the God of Israel doesn’t care.”
