Young's Literal Translation
Psalms, Chapter 10

   1: Why, Jehovah, dost Thou stand at a distance? Thou dost hide in times of adversity,
   2: Through the pride of the wicked, Is the poor inflamed, They are caught in devices that they devised.
   3: Because the wicked hath boasted Of the desire of his soul, And a dishonest gainer he hath blessed, He hath despised Jehovah.
   4: The wicked according to the height of his face, inquireth not. 'God is not!' [are] all his devices.
   5: Pain do his ways at all times, On high [are] Thy judgments before him, All his adversaries -- he puffeth at them.
   6: He hath said in his heart, 'I am not moved,' To generation and generation not in evil.
   7: Of oaths his mouth is full, And deceits, and fraud: Under his tongue [is] perverseness and iniquity,
   8: He doth sit in an ambush of the villages, In secret places he doth slay the innocent. His eyes for the afflicted watch secretly,
   9: He lieth in wait in a secret place, as a lion in a covert. He lieth in wait to catch the poor, He catcheth the poor, drawing him into his net.
   10: He is bruised -- he boweth down, Fallen by his mighty ones hath the afflicted.
   11: He said in his heart, 'God hath forgotten, He hath hid His face, He hath never seen.'
   12: Arise, O Jehovah! O God, lift up Thy hand! Forget not the humble.
   13: Wherefore hath the wicked despised God? He hath said in his heart, 'It is not required.'
   14: Thou hast seen, For Thou perverseness and anger beholdest; By giving into Thy hand, On Thee doth the afflicted leave [it], Of the fatherless Thou hast been an helper.
   15: Break the arm of the wicked and the evil, Seek out his wickedness, find none;
   16: Jehovah [is] king to the age, and for ever, The nations have perished out of His land!
   17: The desire of the humble Thou hast heard, O Jehovah. Thou preparest their heart; Thou causest Thine ear to attend,
   18: To judge the fatherless and bruised: He addeth no more to oppress -- man of the earth!
