Ben Sira 35:22-26 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
22 judges justly and affirms the right.
God indeed will not delay,
and like a warrior, will not be still
Till he breaks the backs of the merciless
23 and wreaks vengeance upon the nations;
Till he destroys the scepter of the proud,
and cuts off the staff of the wicked;
24 Till he requites everyone according to their deeds,
and repays them according to their thoughts;
25 Till he defends the cause of his people,
and makes them glad by his salvation.
26 Welcome is his mercy in time of distress
as rain clouds in time of drought.
