Psalm 94 (WEBP)

[1] Yahweh, you God to whom vengeance belongs, you God to whom vengeance belongs, shine out.
[2] Rise up, you judge of the earth. Pay back the proud what they deserve.
[3] Yahweh, how long will the wicked, how long will the wicked triumph?
[4] They pour out arrogant words. All the evildoers boast.
[5] They break your people in pieces, Yahweh, and afflict your heritage.
[6] They kill the widow and the alien, and murder the fatherless.
[7] They say, “Yah will not see, neither will Jacob’s God consider.”
[8] Consider, you senseless among the people; you fools, when will you be wise?
[9] He who implanted the ear, won’t he hear? He who formed the eye, won’t he see?
[10] He who disciplines the nations, won’t he punish? He who teaches man knows.
[11] Yahweh knows the thoughts of man, that they are futile.
[12] Blessed is the man whom you discipline, Yah, and teach out of your law,
[13] that you may give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit is dug for the wicked.
[14] For Yahweh won’t reject his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
[15] For judgment will return to righteousness. All the upright in heart shall follow it.
[16] Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will stand up for me against the evildoers?
[17] Unless Yahweh had been my help, my soul would have soon lived in silence.
[18] When I said, “My foot is slipping!” Your loving kindness, Yahweh, held me up.
[19] In the multitude of my thoughts within me, your comforts delight my soul.
[20] Shall the throne of wickedness have fellowship with you, which brings about mischief by statute?
[21] They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
[22] But Yahweh has been my high tower, my God, the rock of my refuge.
[23] He has brought on them their own iniquity, and will cut them off in their own wickedness. Yahweh, our God, will cut them off.

Psalm 94 (KJVS)

[1] O LORD H3068 God H410, to whom vengeance H5360 belongeth; O God H410, to whom vengeance H5360 belongeth, shew H3313 (8685) thyself.
[2] Lift up H5375 (8734) thyself, thou judge H8199 (8802) of the earth H776: render H7725 (8685) a reward H1576 to the proud H1343.
[3] LORD H3068, how long shall the wicked H7563, how long shall the wicked H7563 triumph H5937 (8799)?
[4] [How long] shall they utter H5042 (8686) [and] speak H1696 (8762) hard things H6277? [and] all the workers H6466 (8802) of iniquity H205 boast H559 (8691) themselves?
[5] They break in pieces H1792 (8762) thy people H5971, O LORD H3068, and afflict H6031 (8762) thine heritage H5159.
[6] They slay H2026 (8799) the widow H490 and the stranger H1616, and murder H7523 (8762) the fatherless H3490.
[7] Yet they say H559 (8799), The LORD H3050 shall not see H7200 (8799), neither shall the God H430 of Jacob H3290 regard H995 (8799) [it].
[8] Understand H995 (8798), ye brutish H1197 (8802) among the people H5971: and [ye] fools H3684, when will ye be wise H7919 (8686)?
[9] He that planted H5193 (8802) the ear H241, shall he not hear H8085 (8799)? he that formed H3335 (8802) the eye H5869, shall he not see H5027 (8686)?
[10] He that chastiseth H3256 (8802) the heathen H1471, shall not he correct H3198 (8686)? he that teacheth H3925 (8764) man H120 knowledge H1847, [shall not he know]?
[11] The LORD H3068 knoweth H3045 (8802) the thoughts H4284 of man H120, that they [are] vanity H1892.
[12] Blessed H835 [is] the man H1397 whom thou chastenest H3256 (8762), O LORD H3050, and teachest H3925 (8762) him out of thy law H8451;
[13] That thou mayest give him rest H8252 (8687) from the days H3117 of adversity H7451, until the pit H7845 be digged H3738 (8735) for the wicked H7563.
[14] For the LORD H3068 will not cast off H5203 (8799) his people H5971, neither will he forsake H5800 (8799) his inheritance H5159.
[15] But judgment H4941 shall return H7725 (8799) unto righteousness H6664: and all the upright H3477 in heart H3820 shall follow H310 it.
[16] Who will rise up H6965 (8799) for me against the evildoers H7489 (8688)? [or] who will stand up H3320 (8691) for me against the workers H6466 (8802) of iniquity H205?
[17] Unless H3884 the LORD H3068 [had been] my help H5833, my soul H5315 had almost H4592 dwelt H7931 (8804) in silence H1745.
[18] When I said H559 (8804), My foot H7272 slippeth H4131 (8804); thy mercy H2617, O LORD H3068, held me up H5582 (8799).
[19] In the multitude H7230 of my thoughts H8312 within H7130 me thy comforts H8575 delight H8173 (8770) my soul H5315.
[20] Shall the throne H3678 of iniquity H1942 have fellowship H2266 (8792) with thee, which frameth H3335 (8802) mischief H5999 by a law H2706?
[21] They gather themselves together H1413 (8799) against the soul H5315 of the righteous H6662, and condemn H7561 (8686) the innocent H5355 blood H1818.
[22] But the LORD H3068 is my defence H4869; and my God H430 [is] the rock H6697 of my refuge H4268.
[23] And he shall bring H7725 (8686) upon them their own iniquity H205, and shall cut them off H6789 (8686) in their own wickedness H7451; [yea], the LORD H3068 our God H430 shall cut them off H6789 (8686).

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 94 (YLT)

[1] God of vengeance-Jehovah! God of vengeance, shine forth.
[2] Be lifted up, O Judge of the earth, Send back a recompence on the proud.
[3] Till when do the wicked, O Jehovah? Till when do the wicked exult?
[4] They utter-they speak an old saw, All working iniquity do boast themselves.
[5] Thy people, O Jehovah, they bruise, And Thine inheritance they afflict.
[6] Widow and sojourner they slay, And fatherless ones they murder.
[7] And they say, ‘Jehovah doth not see, And the God of Jacob doth not consider.’
[8] Consider, ye brutish among the people, And ye foolish, when do ye act wisely?
[9] He who planteth the ear doth He not hear? He who formeth the eye doth He not see?
[10] He who is instructing nations, Doth He not reprove? He who is teaching man knowledge is Jehovah.
[11] He knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
[12] O the happiness of the man Whom Thou instructest, O Jah, And out of Thy law teachest him,
[13] To give rest to him from days of evil, While a pit is digged for the wicked.
[14] For Jehovah leaveth not His people, And His inheritance forsaketh not.
[15] For to righteousness judgment turneth back, And after it all the upright of heart,
[16] Who riseth up for me with evil doers? Who stationeth himself for me with workers of iniquity?
[17] Unless Jehovah were a help to me, My soul had almost inhabited silence.
[18] If I have said, ‘My foot hath slipped,’ Thy kindness, O Jehovah, supporteth me.
[19] In the abundance of my thoughts within me, Thy comforts delight my soul.
[20] Is a throne of mischief joined with Thee? A framer of perverseness by statute?
[21] They decree against the soul of the righteous, And innocent blood declare wicked.
[22] And Jehovah is for a high place to me, And my God is for a rock-my refuge,
[23] And turneth back on them their iniquity, And in their wickedness cutteth them off; Jehovah our God doth cut them off!
