New International Version
2 How long,(A) Lord, must I call for help,
but you do not listen?(B)
Or cry out to you, “Violence!”
but you do not save?(C)
3 Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate(D) wrongdoing?(E)
Destruction and violence(F) are before me;
there is strife,(G) and conflict abounds.
4 Therefore the law(H) is paralyzed,
and justice never prevails.
The wicked hem in the righteous,
so that justice(I) is perverted.(J)
