New International Version
His ways are always prosperous; your laws are rejected by him; he sneers at all his enemies.

His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
Darby Bible Translation
His ways always succeed; thy judgments are far above out of his sight; [as for] all his adversaries, he puffeth at them.
World English Bible

Pain do his ways at all times, On high are Thy judgments before him, All his adversaries -- he puffeth at them.
Psalm 10:5 Parallel
