94 O Lord, God of pvengeance,
O God of vengeance, qshine forth!
repay to the tproud what they deserve!
3 O Lord, uhow long shall the wicked,
how long shall vthe wicked exult?
4 They pour out their warrogant words;
all xthe evildoers boast.
5 They ycrush your people, O Lord,
6 They kill zthe widow and the sojourner,
and murder zthe fatherless;
7 aand they say, “The Lord does not see;
8 bUnderstand, O dullest of the people!
9 cHe who planted the ear, does he not hear?
10 He who ddisciplines the nations, does he not rebuke?
He who eteaches man knowledge—
11 fthe Lord—knows the thoughts of man,
until la pit is dug for the wicked.
he will not abandon his nheritage;
15 for ojustice will return to the righteous,
and all the upright in heart will pfollow it.
16 qWho rises up for me against the wicked?
17 rIf the Lord had not been my help,
my soul would soon have lived in the land of ssilence.
18 When I thought, t“My foot slips,”
your steadfast love, O Lord, uheld me up.
20 Can wwicked rulers be allied with you,
those who frame injustice by xstatute?
21 They yband together against the life of the righteous
22 But the Lord has become my astronghold,
23 He will bring back on them dtheir iniquity
and ewipe them out for their wickedness;
