Psalms 94 (asv)
Thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, shine forth.
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.
And afflict thy heritage.
94:6They slay the widow and the sojourner,
And murder the fatherless.
94:7And they say, Jehovah will not see,
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,
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.
Neither will he forsake his inheritance.
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,
94:18When I said, My foot slippeth;
Thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, held me up.
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;
