Psalm 10 (WEBP)

[1] Why do you stand far off, Yahweh? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
[2] In arrogance, the wicked hunt down the weak. They are caught in the schemes that they devise.
[3] For the wicked boasts of his heart’s cravings. He blesses the greedy and condemns Yahweh.
[4] The wicked, in the pride of his face, has no room in his thoughts for God.
[5] His ways are prosperous at all times. He is arrogant, and your laws are far from his sight. As for all his adversaries, he sneers at them.
[6] He says in his heart, “I shall not be shaken. For generations I shall have no trouble.”
[7] His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, and oppression. Under his tongue is mischief and iniquity.
[8] He lies in wait near the villages. From ambushes, he murders the innocent. His eyes are secretly set against the helpless.
[9] He lurks in secret as a lion in his ambush. He lies in wait to catch the helpless. He catches the helpless when he draws him in his net.
[10] The helpless are crushed. They collapse. They fall under his strength.
[11] He says in his heart, “God has forgotten. He hides his face. He will never see it.”
[12] Arise, Yahweh! God, lift up your hand! Don’t forget the helpless.
[13] Why does the wicked person condemn God, and say in his heart, “God won’t call me into account”?
[14] But you do see trouble and grief. You consider it to take it into your hand. You help the victim and the fatherless.
[15] Break the arm of the wicked. As for the evil man, seek out his wickedness until you find none.
[16] Yahweh is King forever and ever! The nations will perish out of his land.
[17] Yahweh, you have heard the desire of the humble. You will prepare their heart. You will cause your ear to hear,
[18] to judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that man who is of the earth may terrify no more.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Psalm 10 (KJVS)

[1] Why standest H5975 (8799) thou afar off H7350, O LORD H3068? [why] hidest H5956 (8686) thou [thyself] in times H6256 of trouble H6869?
[2] The wicked H7563 in [his] pride H1346 doth persecute H1814 (8799) the poor H6041: let them be taken H8610 (8735) in the devices H4209 that H2098 they have imagined H2803 (8804).
[3] For the wicked H7563 boasteth H1984 (8765) of his heart’s H5315 desire H8378, and blesseth H1288 (8765) the covetous H1214 (8802), [whom] the LORD H3068 abhorreth H5006 (8765).
[4] The wicked H7563, through the pride H1363 of his countenance H639, will not seek H1875 (8799) [after God]: God H430 [is] not in all his thoughts H4209.
[5] His ways H1870 are always H6256 grievous H2342 (8799); thy judgments H4941 [are] far above H4791 out of his sight: [as for] all his enemies H6887 (8802), he puffeth H6315 (8686) at them.
[6] He hath said H559 (8804) in his heart H3820, I shall not be moved H4131 (8735): for [I shall] never H1755 H1755 [be] in adversity H7451.
[7] His mouth H6310 is full H4390 (8804) of cursing H423 and deceit H4820 and fraud H8496: under his tongue H3956 [is] mischief H5999 and vanity H205.
[8] He sitteth H3427 (8799) in the lurking places H3993 of the villages H2691: in the secret places H4565 doth he murder H2026 (8799) the innocent H5355: his eyes H5869 are privily set H6845 (8799) against the poor H2489.
[9] He lieth in wait H693 (8799) secretly H4565 as a lion H738 in his den H5520: he lieth in wait H693 (8799) to catch H2414 (8800) the poor H6041: he doth catch H2414 (8799) the poor H6041, when he draweth H4900 (8800) him into his net H7568.
[10] He croucheth H1794 (8799), [and] humbleth H7817 (8799) himself, that the poor H2426 (8675) H2489 (8676) H2489 may fall H5307 (8804) by his strong ones H6099.
[11] He hath said H559 (8804) in his heart H3820, God H410 hath forgotten H7911 (8804): he hideth H5641 (8689) his face H6440; he will never H5331 see H7200 (8804) [it].
[12] Arise H6965 (8798), O LORD H3068; O God H410, lift up H5375 (8798) thine hand H3027: forget H7911 (8799) not the humble H6035 (8675) H6041.
[13] Wherefore doth the wicked H7563 contemn H5006 (8765) God H430? he hath said H559 (8804) in his heart H3820, Thou wilt not require H1875 (8799) [it].
[14] Thou hast seen H7200 (8804) [it]; for thou beholdest H5027 (8686) mischief H5999 and spite H3708, to requite H5414 (8800) [it] with thy hand H3027: the poor H2489 committeth H5800 (8799) himself unto thee; thou art the helper H5826 (8802) of the fatherless H3490.
[15] Break H7665 (8798) thou the arm H2220 of the wicked H7563 and the evil H7451 [man]: seek out H1875 (8799) his wickedness H7562 [till] thou find H4672 (8799) none H1077.
[16] The LORD H3068 [is] King H4428 for ever H5769 and ever H5703: the heathen H1471 are perished H6 (8804) out of his land H776.
[17] LORD H3068, thou hast heard H8085 (8804) the desire H8378 of the humble H6035: thou wilt prepare H3559 (8686) their heart H3820, thou wilt cause thine ear H241 to hear H7181 (8686):
[18] To judge H8199 (8800) the fatherless H3490 and the oppressed H1790, that the man H582 of the earth H776 may no more H3254 (8686) oppress H6206 (8800).

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 10 (YLT)

[1] Why, Jehovah, dost Thou stand at a distance? Thou dost hide in times of adversity,
[2] Through the pride of the wicked, Is the poor inflamed, They are caught in devices that they devised.
[3] Because the wicked hath boasted Of the desire of his soul, And a dishonest gainer he hath blessed, He hath despised Jehovah.
[4] The wicked according to the height of his face, inquireth not. ‘God is not!’ are all his devices.
[5] Pain do his ways at all times, On high are Thy judgments before him, All his adversaries-he puffeth at them.
[6] He hath said in his heart, ‘I am not moved,’ To generation and generation not in evil.
[7] Of oaths his mouth is full, And deceits, and fraud: Under his tongue is perverseness and iniquity,
[8] He doth sit in an ambush of the villages, In secret places he doth slay the innocent. His eyes for the afflicted watch secretly,
[9] He lieth in wait in a secret place, as a lion in a covert. He lieth in wait to catch the poor, He catcheth the poor, drawing him into his net.
[10] He is bruised-he boweth down, Fallen by his mighty ones hath the afflicted.
[11] He said in his heart, ‘God hath forgotten, He hath hid His face, He hath never seen.’
[12] Arise, O Jehovah! O God, lift up Thy hand! Forget not the humble.
[13] Wherefore hath the wicked despised God? He hath said in his heart, ‘It is not required.’
[14] Thou hast seen, For Thou perverseness and anger beholdest; By giving into Thy hand, On Thee doth the afflicted leave it, Of the fatherless Thou hast been an helper.
[15] Break the arm of the wicked and the evil, Seek out his wickedness, find none;
[16] Jehovah is king to the age, and for ever, The nations have perished out of His land!
[17] The desire of the humble Thou hast heard, O Jehovah. Thou preparest their heart; Thou causest Thine ear to attend,
[18] To judge the fatherless and bruised: He addeth no more to oppress-man of the earth!
