Psalms 10

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.
