English Standard Version
2 O Lord, (A)how long shall I cry for help,
and you will not hear?
Or cry to you (B)“Violence!”
and you will not save?
3 (C)Why do you make me see iniquity,
and why do you idly look at wrong?
Destruction (D)and violence are before me;
strife and contention arise.
4 (E)So the law is paralyzed,
and justice never goes forth.
(F)For the wicked surround the righteous;
so justice goes forth perverted.
