Do not worry - God knows your helplessness and He hears your cries - Psalm 10




Psalm 10
1 O Lord, why do you stand so far away?
    Why do you hide when I am in trouble?
2 The wicked arrogantly hunt down the poor.
    Let them be caught in 
the evil they plan for others.
3 For they brag about their evil desires;
    they praise the greedy and curse the Lord.
4 The wicked are too proud to seek God.
    They seem to think that God is dead.
5 Yet they succeed in everything they do.
    They do not see your 
punishment awaiting them.
    They sneer at all their enemies.
6 They think, “Nothing bad 
will ever happen to us!
    We will be free of trouble forever!”
7 Their mouths are full of 
cursing, lies, and threats.
    Trouble and evil are on the tips of their tongues.
8 They lurk in ambush in the villages,
    waiting to murder innocent people.
    They are always searching for helpless victims.
9 Like lions crouched in hiding,
    they wait to pounce on the helpless.
Like hunters they capture the helpless
    and drag them away in nets.
10 Their helpless victims are crushed;
    they fall beneath the strength of the wicked.
11 The wicked think, “God isn’t watching us!
    He has closed his eyes and 
won’t even see what we do!”
12 Arise, O Lord!
    Punish the wicked, O God!
    Do not ignore the helpless!
13 Why do the wicked get 
away with despising God?
    They think, “God will never call us to account.”
14 But you see the trouble and grief they cause.
    You take note of it and punish them.
The helpless put their trust in you.
    You defend the orphans.
15 Break the arms of these wicked, evil people!
    Go after them until the last one is destroyed.
16 The Lord is king forever and ever!
    The godless nations will vanish from the land.
17 Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless.
    Surely you will hear 
their cries and comfort them.
18 You will bring justice to 
the orphans and the oppressed,
    so mere people can no longer terrify them.
