O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew54 thyself.
Lift up10 thyself, thou judge6 of the earth: render54 a reward to the proud.
LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?4
[How long] shall they utter55 [and] speak17 hard things? [and] all the workers6 of iniquity boast101 themselves?
They break in pieces17 thy people, O LORD, and afflict17 thine heritage.
They slay4 the widow and the stranger, and murder17 the fatherless.
Yet they say,4 The LORD shall not see,4 neither shall the God of Jacob regard4 [it].
Understand,3 ye brutish6 among the people: and [ye] fools, when will ye be wise?55
He that planted6 the ear, shall he not hear?4 he that formed6 the eye, shall he not see?55
He that chastiseth6 the heathen, shall not he correct?55 he that teacheth18 man knowledge, [shall not he know]?
The LORD knoweth6 the thoughts of man, that they [are] vanity.
Blessed [is] the man whom thou chastenest,17 O LORD, and teachest17 him out of thy law;
That thou mayest give him rest53 from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged11 for the wicked.
For the LORD will not cast off4 his people, neither will he forsake4 his inheritance.
But judgment shall return4 unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
Who will rise up4 for me against the evildoers?56 [or] who will stand up101 for me against the workers6 of iniquity?
Unless the LORD [had been] my help, my soul had almost dwelt1 in silence.
When I said,1 My foot slippeth;1 thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.4
In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight46 my soul.
Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship29 with thee, which frameth6 mischief by a law?
They gather themselves together4 against the soul of the righteous, and condemn55 the innocent blood.
But the LORD is my defence; and my God [is] the rock of my refuge.
And he shall bring55 upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off55 in their own wickedness; [yea], the LORD our God shall cut them off.55
