10 Why, O Jehovah, do you stand at a distance?
Why do you hide yourself in times of distress?+
But he will be caught in the schemes he devises.+
And blesses the greedy one;*
He disrespects Jehovah.
4 In his haughtiness, the wicked man makes no investigation;
All his thoughts are: “There is no God.”+
But your judgments are beyond his understanding;+
He scoffs* at all his adversaries.
For generation after generation
I will never see calamity.”+
His eyes are watching for an unfortunate victim.+
He waits to seize the helpless one.
He seizes the helpless one when he pulls his net shut.+
He has turned away his face.
He never notices.”+
Do not forget the helpless ones.+
13 Why has the wicked one disrespected God?
He says in his heart: “You will not hold me accountable.”
14 But you do see trouble and distress.
You look on and take matters in hand.+
So that when you search for his wickedness,
You will find it no more.
The nations have perished from the earth.+
