1: O God of vengeances, Jehovah, God of vengeances, shine forth; 2: Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth, render the reward to the proud. 3: How long shall the wicked, O Jehovah, how long shall the wicked triumph? 4: [How long] shall they utter [and] speak insolence -- all the workers of iniquity boast themselves? 5: They crush thy people, O Jehovah, and afflict thine inheritance; 6: They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless, 7: And say, Jah will not see, neither will the God of Jacob regard [it]. 8: Understand, ye brutish among the people; and ye fools, when will ye be wise? 9: He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? He that formed the eye, shall he not see? 10: He that instructeth the nations, shall not he correct -- he that teacheth man knowledge? 11: Jehovah knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity. 12: Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Jah, and whom thou teachest out of thy law; 13: That thou mayest give him rest from the days of evil, until the pit be digged for the wicked. 14: For Jehovah will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance; 15: For judgment shall return unto righteousness, and all the upright in heart shall follow it. 16: Who will rise up for me against the evil-doers? who will stand for me against the workers of iniquity? 17: If Jehovah had not been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. 18: When I said, My foot slippeth, thy loving-kindness, O Jehovah, held me up. 19: In the multitude of my anxious thoughts within me thy comforts have delighted my soul. 20: Shall the throne of wickedness be united to thee, which frameth mischief into a law? 21: They band together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood. 22: But Jehovah will be my high tower; and my God the rock of my refuge. 23: And he will bring upon them their iniquity, and will cut them off in their own evil: Jehovah our God will cut them off.
