New International Version
2 In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,(A)
who are caught in the schemes he devises.
3 He boasts(B) about the cravings of his heart;
he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.(C)
4 In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
in all his thoughts there is no room for God.(D)
5 His ways are always prosperous;
your laws are rejected by[a] him;
he sneers at all his enemies.
6 He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.”
He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.”(E)
7 His mouth is full(F) of lies and threats;(G)
trouble and evil are under his tongue.(H)
8 He lies in wait(I) near the villages;
from ambush he murders the innocent.(J)
His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
9 like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless;(K)
he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.(L)
10 His victims are crushed,(M) they collapse;
they fall under his strength.
11 He says to himself, “God will never notice;(N)
he covers his face and never sees.”(O)
