But, Lord ·All-Powerful [Almighty; of Heaven’s Armies; T of hosts], you ·are a fair judge [judge righteously]. You know how to test peoples’ ·hearts and minds [motives and thoughts]. I have ·told you what I have against them [committed my cause to you]. So let me see you give them the ·punishment [revenge] they deserve.
But, Lord of heaven’s armies, you are a fair judge. You know how to test peoples’ hearts and minds. I will tell you what I have against them. And I will let you give them the punishment they should have!
Then I said, “God-of-the-Angel-Armies, you’re a fair judge. You examine and cross-examine human actions and motives. I want to see these people shown up and put down! I’m an open book before you. Clear my name.”
So I said to the Lord, “O Lord who rules over all, you are a just judge! You examine people’s hearts and minds. I want to see you pay them back for what they have done because I trust you to vindicate my cause.”
But thou, Lord of hosts, that deemest justly, and provest reins and hearts, see I thy vengeance of them; for to thee I showed my cause. (But thou, Lord of hosts, who judgest justly, and provest reins and hearts, let me see thy vengeance against them; for I have shown my cause to thee/for I have made my case to thee.)
