Psalm 10

CEB 1 Why do you stand so far away, LORD, hiding yourself in troubling times? NRS 1 Why, O Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? CEB 2 Meanwhile, the wicked are proudly in hot pursuit of those who suffer. Let them get caught in the very same schemes they've thought up! NRS 2 In arrogance the wicked persecute the poor— let them be caught in the schemes they have devised. CEB 3 The wicked brag about their body's cravings; the greedy reject the LORD, cursing. NRS 3 For the wicked boast of the desires of their heart, those greedy for gain curse and renounce the Lord. CEB 4 At the peak of their wrath, the wicked don't seek God: There's no God— that's what they are always thinking. NRS 4 In the pride of their countenance the wicked say, "God will not seek it out"; all their thoughts are, "There is no God." CEB 5 Their ways are always twisted. Your rules are too lofty for them. They snort at all their foes. NRS 5 Their ways prosper at all times; your judgments are on high, out of their sight; as for their foes, they scoff at them. CEB 6 They think to themselves, We'll never stumble. We'll never encounter any resistance. NRS 6 They think in their heart, "We shall not be moved; throughout all generations we shall not meet adversity." CEB 7 Their mouths are filled with curses, dishonesty, violence. Under their tongues lie troublemaking and wrongdoing. NRS 7 Their mouths are filled with cursing and deceit and oppression; under their tongues are mischief and iniquity. CEB 8 They wait in a place perfect for ambush; from their hiding places they kill innocent people; their eyes spot those who are helpless. NRS 8 They sit in ambush in the villages; in hiding places they murder the innocent. Their eyes stealthily watch for the helpless; CEB 9 They lie in ambush in secret places, like a lion in its lair. They lie in ambush so they can seize those who suffer! They seize the poor, all right, dragging them off in their nets. NRS 9 they lurk in secret like a lion in its covert; they lurk that they may seize the poor; they seize the poor and drag them off in their net. CEB 10 Their helpless victims are crushed; they collapse, falling prey to the strength of the wicked. NRS 10 They stoop, they crouch, and the helpless fall by their might. CEB 11 The wicked think to themselves: God has forgotten. God has hidden his face. God never sees anything! NRS 11 They think in their heart, "God has forgotten, he has hidden his face, he will never see it." CEB 12 Get up, LORD! Get your fist ready, God! Don't forget the ones who suffer! NRS 12 Rise up, O Lord; O God, lift up your hand; do not forget the oppressed. CEB 13 Why do the wicked reject God? Why do they think to themselves that you won't find out? NRS 13 Why do the wicked renounce God, and say in their hearts, "You will not call us to account"? CEB 14 But you do see! You do see troublemaking and grief, and you do something about it! The helpless leave it all to you. You are the orphan's helper. NRS 14 But you do see! Indeed you note trouble and grief, that you may take it into your hands; the helpless commit themselves to you; you have been the helper of the orphan. CEB 15 Break the arms of those who are wicked and evil. Seek out their wickedness until there's no more to find. NRS 15 Break the arm of the wicked and evildoers; seek out their wickedness until you find none. CEB 16 The LORD rules forever and always! The nations will vanish from his land. NRS 16 The Lord is king forever and ever; the nations shall perish from his land. CEB 17 LORD, you listen to the desires of those who suffer. You steady their hearts; you listen closely to them, NRS 17 O Lord, you will hear the desire of the meek; you will strengthen their heart, you will incline your ear CEB 18 to establish justice for the orphan and the oppressed, so that people of the land will never again be terrified. NRS 18 to do justice for the orphan and the oppressed, so that those from earth may strike terror no more.
