Psalms 94 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

94:1O Jehovah, thou God to whom vengeance belongeth,

Thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, shine forth.

94:2Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth:

Render to the proud their desert.

94:3Jehovah, how long shall the wicked,

How long shall the wicked triumph?

94:4They prate, they speak arrogantly:

All the workers of iniquity boast themselves.

94:5They break in pieces thy people, O Jehovah,

And afflict thy heritage.

94:6They slay the widow and the sojourner,

And murder the fatherless.

94:7And they say, Jehovah will not see,

Neither will the God of Jacob consider.

94:8Consider, ye brutish among the people;

And ye fools, when will ye be wise?

94:9He that planted the ear, shall he not hear?

He that formed the eye, shall he not see?

94:10He that chastiseth the nations, shall not he correct,

Even he that teacheth man knowledge?

94:11Jehovah knoweth the thoughts of man,


94:12Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Jehovah,

And teachest out of thy law;

94:13That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity,

Until the pit be digged for the wicked.

94:14For Jehovah will not cast off his people,

Neither will he forsake his inheritance.

94:15For judgment shall return unto righteousness;

And all the upright in heart shall follow it.

94:16Who will rise up for me against the evil-doers?

Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

94:17Unless Jehovah had been my help,

My soul had soon dwelt in silence.

94:18When I said, My foot slippeth;

Thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, held me up.

94:19In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul.

94:20Shall the throne of wickedness have fellowship with thee,

Which frameth mischief by statute?

94:21They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous,

And condemn the innocent blood.

94:22But Jehovah hath been my high tower,

And my God the rock of my refuge.

94:23And he hath brought upon them their own iniquity,

And will cut them off in their own wickedness;

Jehovah our God will cut them off.
