94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom
vengeance belongeth, show thyself.
94:2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward
to the proud.
94:3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked
94:4 [How long] shall they utter [and] speak hard things? [and]
all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
94:5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thy
94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the
94:7 Yet they say, The LORD will not see, neither will the God
of Jacob regard [it].
94:8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and [ye] fools,
when will ye be wise?
94:9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed
the eye, shall he not see?
94:10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall he not correct? he
that teacheth man knowledge, [shall he not know]?
94:11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they [are]
94:12 Blessed [is] the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and
teachest him out of thy law;
94:13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity,
until the pit be digged for the wicked.
94:14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he
forsake his inheritance.
94:15 But judgment shall return to righteousness: and all the
upright in heart shall follow it.
94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evil-doers? [or] who
will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
94:17 Unless the LORD [had been] my help, my soul had almost
dwelt in silence.
94:18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me
94:19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me, thy comforts
delight my soul.
94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee,
which frameth mischief by a law?
94:21 They assemble themselves against the soul of the
righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
94:22 But the LORD is my defense; and my God [is] the rock of my
94:23 And he will bring upon them their own iniquity, and will
cut them off in their own wickedness; [yes], the LORD our God
will cut them off.
