13 How much longer will you forget me, Lord? Forever? How much longer will you hide yourself from me? 2 How long must I endure trouble? How long will sorrow fill my heart day and night? How long will my enemies triumph over me?
3 Look at me, O Lord my God, and answer me. Restore my strength; don't let me die. 4 Don't let my enemies say, “We have defeated him.” Don't let them gloat over my downfall.
5 I rely on your constant love; I will be glad, because you will rescue me. 6 I will sing to you, O Lord, because you have been good to me.
14 Fools say to themselves, “There is no God!” They are all corrupt, and they have done terrible things; there is no one who does what is right.
2 The Lord looks down from heaven at us humans to see if there are any who are wise, any who worship him. 3 But they have all gone wrong; they are all equally bad. Not one of them does what is right, not a single one.
4 “Don't they know?” asks the Lord. “Are all these evildoers ignorant? They live by robbing my people, and they never pray to me.”
5 But then they will be terrified, for God is with those who obey him. 6 Evildoers frustrate the plans of the humble, but the Lord is their protection.
7 How I pray that victory will come to Israel from Zion. How happy the people of Israel will be when the Lord makes them prosperous again!
