Psalm 10:1-2 Modern English Version (MEV)

Psalm 10

Why do You stand far off, O Lord?
    Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?

In arrogance the wicked persecutes the poor;
    let them be caught in the devices they have planned.

Why, Lord, do you stand far off?

In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
    who are caught in the schemes he devises.
