King James Bible

World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation

Psalm 9:12 Parallel

If man should make no inquisition for this iniquitously spilt blood, God will do it, for he remembers them; and the cry of the humbled, distressed people, driven to distraction and ruin by such wars, is not forgotten before him.

Reuben replied, "Didn't I tell you not to sin against the boy? But you wouldn't listen! Now we must give an accounting for his blood."
2 Samuel 4:11
How much more--when wicked men have killed an innocent man in his own house and on his own bed--should I not now demand his blood from your hand and rid the earth of you!"
But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.
Arise, LORD! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless.
He will rescue them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in his sight.
He remembered us in our low estate His love endures forever.
