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.

[2] Lift up () thyself, thou judge () of the earth : render () a reward to the proud .
[3] LORD , how long shall the wicked , how long shall the wicked triumph ()?

[5] They break in pieces () thy people , O LORD , and afflict () thine heritage .

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!
