Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:1 - Why do You stand afar off, O LORD?
Why do You hide [fn]Yourself in times of trouble?
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:2 - In pride the wicked [fn]hotly pursue the afflicted;
[fn]Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:3 - For the wicked boasts of his heart’s desire,
And [fn]the greedy man curses and spurns the LORD.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:4 - The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him.
All his [fn]thoughts are, “There is no God.”
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:5 - His ways [fn]prosper at all times;
Your judgments are on high, out of his sight;
As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:6 - He says to himself, “I will not be moved;
[fn]Throughout all generations I will not be in adversity.”
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:7 - His mouth is full of curses and deceit and oppression;
Under his tongue is mischief and wickedness.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:8 - He sits in the lurking places of the villages;
In the hiding places he kills the innocent;
His eyes [fn]stealthily watch for the [fn]unfortunate.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:9 - He lurks in a hiding place as a lion in his [fn]lair;
He lurks to catch the afflicted;
He catches the afflicted when he draws him into his net.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:10 - He [fn]crouches, he [fn]bows down,
And the [fn]unfortunate fall [fn]by his mighty ones.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:11 - He says to himself, “God has forgotten;
He has hidden His face; He will never see it.”

Do not forget the afflicted.

He has said to himself, “You will not require it.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:14 - You have seen it, for You have beheld mischief and vexation to [fn]take it into Your hand.
The [fn]unfortunate commits himself to You;
You have been the helper of the orphan.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:15 - Break the arm of the wicked and the evildoer,
[fn]Seek out his wickedness until You find none.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:16 - The LORD is King forever and ever;
Nations have perished from His land.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:17 - O LORD, You have heard the desire of the [fn]humble;
You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 10:18 - To [fn]vindicate the orphan and the oppressed,
So that man who is of the earth will no longer cause terror.
