PSALMS - Chapter 94

1 - O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
2 - Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 - LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
4 - How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
5 - They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
6 - They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
7 - Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall 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 chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
11 - The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
12 - Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
13 - That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
14 - For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
15 - But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
16 - Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
17 - Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
18 - When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
19 - In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
20 - Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
21 - They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
22 - But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
23 - And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.
