Psalm 94
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1God of vengeance—YHWH! God of vengeance, shine forth.

2Be lifted up, judging the earth, "" Send back a repayment on the proud.

3Until when do the wicked, O YHWH—Until when do the wicked exult?

4They utter—they speak arrogance, "" All working iniquity boast [about] themselves.

5Your people, O YHWH, they bruise, "" And they afflict Your inheritance.

6They slay widow and sojourner, "" And they murder fatherless ones.

7And they say, “YAH does not see, "" And the God of Jacob does not consider.”

8Consider, you brutish among the people, "" And you foolish, when do you act wisely?

9He who plants the ear, does He not hear? He who forms the eye, does He not see?

10He who is instructing nations, does He not reprove? He who is teaching man knowledge [is] YHWH.

11He knows the thoughts of man, that they [are] vanity.

12O the blessedness of the man "" Whom You instruct, O YAH, "" And teach him out of Your law,

13To give rest to him from days of evil, "" While a pit is dug for the wicked.

14For YHWH does not leave His people, "" And does not forsake His inheritance.

15For judgment turns back to righteousness, "" And after it all the upright of heart.

16Who rises up for me with evildoers? Who stations himself for me with workers of iniquity?

17Unless YHWH [were] a help to me, "" My soul had almost inhabited silence.

18If I have said, “My foot has slipped,” "" Your kindness, O YHWH, supports me.

19In the abundance of my thoughts within me, "" Your comforts delight my soul.

20Is a throne of mischief joined [with] You? A framer of perverseness by statute?

21They decree against the soul of the righteous, "" And declare innocent blood wicked.

22And YHWH is for a high place to me, "" And my God [is] for a rock—my refuge,

23And He turns back their iniquity on them, "" And in their wickedness cuts them off; Our God YHWH cuts them off!
