Chapter 94

94:1 O the Lord, Thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, Thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, shine forth.

94:2 Lift up Thyself, Thou Judge of the earth; render to the proud their recompense.

94:3 the Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked exult?

94:4 They gush out, they speak arrogancy; all the workers of iniquity bear themselves loftily.

94:5 They crush Thy people, O the Lord, and afflict Thy heritage.

94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.

94:7 And they say: 'The the Lord will not see, neither will the God of Jacob give heed.'

94:8 Consider, ye brutish among the people; and ye fools, when will ye understand?

94:9 He that planted the ear, shall He not hear? He that formed the eye, shall He not see?

94:10 He that instructeth nations, shall not He correct? even He that teacheth man knowledge?

94:11 the Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

94:12 Happy is the man whom Thou instructest, O the Lord, and teachest out of Thy law;

94:13 That Thou mayest give him rest from the days of evil, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

94:14 For the Lord will not cast off His people, neither will He forsake His inheritance.

94:15 For right shall return unto justice, and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evil-doers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

94:17 Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had soon dwelt in silence.

94:18 If I say: 'My foot slippeth', Thy mercy, O the Lord, holdeth me up.

94:19 When my cares are many within me, Thy comforts delight my soul.

94:20 Shall the seat of wickedness have fellowship with Thee, which frameth mischief by statute?

94:21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood.

94:22 But the Lord hath been my high tower, and my God the rock of my refuge.

94:23 And He hath brought upon them their own iniquity, and will cut them off in their own evil; the Lord our God will cut them off.
