NASB — Psalms 10 — KJV

A Prayer for the Overthrow of the Wicked.

  1 Why ado You stand afar off, O LORD?
  Why bdo You hide I[Yourself] in times of trouble?
  2 In apride the wicked Ihotly pursue the afflicted;
  IILet them be bcaught in the plots which they have devised.

[2] ILit burn IIOr They will be caught aPs 73:6, 8 bPs 7:16; 9:16

  3 ¶ For the wicked aboasts of his bheart’s desire,
  And Ithe greedy man curses [and] cspurns the LORD.
  4 The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, adoes not seek [Him].
  All his Ithoughts are, “bThere is no God.”

[3] IOr blesses the greedy man aPs 49:6; 94:3, 4 bPs 112:10 cPs 10:13
[4] IOr plots aPs 10:13; 36:2 bPs 14:1; 36:1

  5 ¶ His ways Iaprosper at all times;
  Your judgments are on high, bout of his sight;
  As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them.
  6 He says to himself, “aI will not be moved;
  IThroughout all generations bI will not be in adversity.”
  7 His amouth is full of curses and deceit and boppression;
  cUnder his tongue is mischief and wickedness.
  8 He sits in the alurking places of the villages;
  In the hiding places he bkills the innocent;
  His eyes Istealthily watch for the IIcunfortunate.
  9 He lurks in a hiding place as aa lion in his Ilair;
  He blurks to catch cthe afflicted;
  He catches the afflicted when he draws him into his dnet.
  10 He Icrouches, he IIbows down,
  And the IIIunfortunate fall IVby his mighty ones.
  11 He asays to himself, “God has forgotten;
  He has hidden His face; He will never see it.”

  12 ¶ Arise, O LORD; O God, alift up Your hand.
  bDo not forget the afflicted.
  13 Why has the wicked aspurned God?
  He has said to himself, “You will not require [it].”
  14 You have seen [it], for You have beheld amischief and vexation to Itake it into Your hand.
  The IIbunfortunate commits [himself] to You;
  You have been the chelper of the orphan.
  15 aBreak the arm of the wicked and the evildoer,

David complaineth to God of the outrage of the wicked.

1 ¶ Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? [why] hidest thou [thyself] in times of trouble? 2 The wicked in [his] pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. 3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, [whom] the LORD abhorreth. 4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek [after God]: God [is] not in all his thoughts. 5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments [are] far above out of his sight: [as for] all his enemies, he puffeth at them. 6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for [I shall] never [be] in adversity. 7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue [is] mischief and vanity. 8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. 9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. 10 He croucheth, [and] humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones. 11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see [it].

He prayeth for remedy.

12 Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble. 13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require [it]. 14 Thou hast seen [it]; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite [it] with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless. 15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil [man]: seek out his wickedness [till] thou find none.
