Psalm 10

10:1 Why standest thou afarre off, O Lord why hidest thou thy selfe in times of trouble 10:2 The wicked in his pride doeth persecute the poore: let them be taken in the deuices that they haue imagined. 10:3 For the wicked boasteth of his hearts desire, and blesseth the couetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. 10:4 The wicked through the pride of his countenance will not seeke after God: God is not in all his thoughts. 10:5 His wayes are alwayes grieuous, thy iudgements are farre aboue out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them. 10:6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moued: for I shall neuer be in aduersitie. 10:7 His mouth is full of cursing, and deceit, and fraud: vnder his tongue is mischiefe and vanitie. 10:8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doeth he murder the innocent: his eyes are priuily set against the poore. 10:9 He lieth in waite secretly as a lyon in his denne, he lieth in wait to catch the poore: he doth catch the poore when he draweth him into his net. 10:10 He croucheth, and humbleth himselfe, that the poore may fall by his strong ones. 10:11 Hee hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face, hee will neuer see it. 10:12 Arise, O Lord, O God lift vp thine hand: forget not the humble. 10:13 Wherefore doeth the wicked contemne God he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it. 10:14 Thou hast seene it, for thou beholdest mischiefe and spite to requite it with thy hand: the poore committeth himselfe vnto thee, thou art the helper of the fatherlesse. 10:15 Breake thou the arme of the wicked, and the euill man: seeke out his wickednes, till thou finde none. 10:16 The Lord is King for euer and euer: the heathen are perished out of his land. 10:17 Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine eare to heare, 10:18 To iudge the fatherlesse and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppresse.
