Psalm 10:1-9 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

Freedom from Terror

Psalm 10

Why, Adonai, are You standing far off?
Why hide Yourself in times of trouble?
In pride the wicked hotly hunts the poor.
Let them be caught in the plots they have planned.
For the wicked one boasts about his soul’s desire.
The greedy one curses, reviling Adonai.
The wicked one, with his nose in the air, never seeks Him.
All his thoughts are: “There is no God.”
His ways are secure at all times.
He haughtily disregards Your judgments.
He snorts at all his adversaries.
He says in his heart: “I’ll never be shaken!
From generation to generation nothing bad will happen.”
His mouth is full of cursing, lies and oppression.
On his tongue are trouble and iniquity.[a]
He lies in ambush near villages.
In hidden places he slays the innocent.
His eyes watch in secret for the helpless.
He lurks in a hiding place like a lion in a thicket.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless.
He catches the unfortunate one, dragging him away in his net.
