So the poor have hope, and injustice shuts its mouth.
The righteous see their ruin and rejoice; the innocent mock them, saying,
The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at you, saying,
The righteous will be glad when they are avenged, when they dip their feet in the blood of the wicked.
But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God will glory in him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
May those who fear you rejoice when they see me, for I have put my hope in your word.
