“The earth is given into the hands of the wicked;
He covers the faces of its judges [so that they are blind to justice].
If it is not He, then who is it [that is responsible for all this injustice]?
“Now my days are swifter than a runner;
They vanish, they see no good.
“They pass by like the [swift] boats made of reeds,
Like an eagle that swoops down on its prey.
