Psalm 10:1-2 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The Cry of the Oppressed[a]

10 Lord, you seem so far away when evil is near!
Why do you stand so far off as though you don’t care?
Why have you hidden yourself when I need you the most?
The arrogant in their elitist pride persecute the poor and helpless.
May you pour out upon them
the very evil they’ve planned against others!


  1. Psalm 10:1 It is likely that Pss. 9 and 10 were originally one psalm. Eight Hebrew manuscripts unite them as well as the Aramaic, Septuagint, and the Latin Vulgate. The Catholic Bible is based on the Latin Vulgate and therefore has a different numbering for the Psalms.
