10 If grace is extended to those who do wrong,
the perpetrators never learn what is right.
Even when surrounded by upright people, they gravitate to evil
and never even notice the awesome beauty of the Eternal.
11 O Eternal One, even when Your hand is raised against them, they do not see it.
When they finally do see how passionately
You act on the people’s behalf, they will be ashamed.
Ah, let the fire that consumes Your enemies consume them.
12 Eternal One, You are preparing peace for us;
in fact, everything we have accomplished has come from You.
New International Version
10 But when grace is shown to the wicked,(A)
they do not learn righteousness;
even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil(B)
and do not regard(C) the majesty of the Lord.
11 Lord, your hand is lifted high,(D)
but they do not see(E) it.
Let them see your zeal(F) for your people and be put to shame;(G)
let the fire(H) reserved for your enemies consume them.
