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.

Psalm 10 (KJVS)

[1] Why standest () thou afar off , O LORD ? [why] hidest () thou [thyself] in times of trouble ?
[2] The wicked in [his] pride doth persecute () the poor : let them be taken () in the devices that they have imagined ().
[3] For the wicked boasteth () of his heart’s desire , and blesseth () the covetous (), [whom] the LORD abhorreth ().
[4] The wicked , through the pride of his countenance , will not seek () [after God]: God [is] not in all his thoughts .
[5] His ways are always grievous (); thy judgments [are] far above out of his sight: [as for] all his enemies (), he puffeth () at them.
[6] He hath said () in his heart , I shall not be moved (): for [I shall] never [be] in adversity .
[7] His mouth is full () of cursing and deceit and fraud : under his tongue [is] mischief and vanity .
[8] He sitteth () in the lurking places of the villages : in the secret places doth he murder () the innocent : his eyes are privily set () against the poor .
[9] He lieth in wait () secretly as a lion in his den : he lieth in wait () to catch () the poor : he doth catch () the poor , when he draweth () him into his net .

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!
