Psalm 10 for Wednesday Night

 Listen to Pastor Matt read Psalm 10: 

Psalm 10

[1] Why, O LORD, do you stand far away?

Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

[2] In arrogance the wicked hotly pursue the poor;

let them be caught in the schemes that they have devised.

[3] For the wicked boasts of the desires of his soul,

and the one greedy for gain curses and renounces the LORD.

[4] In the pride of his face the wicked does not seek him;

all his thoughts are, “There is no God.”

[5] His ways prosper at all times;

your judgments are on high, out of his sight;

as for all his foes, he puffs at them.

[6] He says in his heart, “I shall not be moved;

throughout all generations I shall not meet adversity.”

[7] His mouth is filled with cursing and deceit and oppression;

under his tongue are mischief and iniquity.

[8] He sits in ambush in the villages;

in hiding places he murders the innocent.

His eyes stealthily watch for the helpless;

[9] he lurks in ambush like a lion in his thicket;

he lurks that he may seize the poor;

he seizes the poor when he draws him into his net.

[10] The helpless are crushed, sink down,

and fall by his might.

[11] He says in his heart, “God has forgotten,

he has hidden his face, he will never see it.”

[12] Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up your hand;

forget not the afflicted.

[13] Why does the wicked renounce God

and say in his heart, “You will not call to account”?

[14] But you do see, for you note mischief and vexation,

that you may take it into your hands;

to you the helpless commits himself;

you have been the helper of the fatherless.

[15] Break the arm of the wicked and evildoer;

call his wickedness to account till you find none.

[16] The LORD is king forever and ever;

the nations perish from his land.

[17] O LORD, you hear the desire of the afflicted;

you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear

[18] to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed,

so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more. (ESV)
