He sits in the lurking places of the villages;
In the secret places he murders the innocent;
His eyes are secretly fixed on the helpless.
He lies in wait secretly, as a lion in his den;
He lies in wait to catch the poor;
He catches the poor when he draws him into his net.
10 So [a]he crouches, he lies low,
That the helpless may fall by his [b]strength.
11 He has said in his heart,
“God has forgotten;
He hides His face;
He will never see.”
