Psalm 10
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1WHY standest thou afar off, O LORD? and witholdest thy care in times of trouble?

2The pride of the wicked maketh the poor to suffer; let them be taken in the devices that they have conceived.

3For the ungodly boasts of his own desire, and the LORD is angry when the wicked is blessed.

4The wicked in the pride of his countenance will not seek after God; and there is no God in all his thoughts.

5His ways are always weak; thy judgments are far above out of his sight; as for all his enemies, he despises them.

6He says in his heart, I shall not be moved from generation to generation; for he conceives evil.

7His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud; under his tongue is mischief and deceit.

8He sits in the lurking place of a den; and in a secret place does he murder the innocent; his eyes spy on the destitute.

9He lies in wait to snare the poor by drawing him into his net.

10He shall be humbled and overthrown, and in his bones there shall be sickness and pain.

11He says in his heart, God has forgotten; he has turned away his face; he will never see it.

12Arise, O LORD; O my God, lift up thine hand; forget not the afflicted.

13Why does the wicked provoke God? He says in his heart, God does not seek vengeance.

14Thou hast seen it; for there is mischief and wrath, for thou beholdest that he hath surrendered himself unto thy hands; and the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.

15Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man; seek out his wickedness till thou find none.

16The LORD is King for ever and ever; the Gentiles are perished out of his land.

17LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the poor; thine ear hath heard the preparation of their heart;

18Execute justice to the fatherless and to the afflicted, so that man may not be destroyed from the face of the earth.
