O Yahweh, you El to whom vengeance belongs.
You El to whom vengeance belongs, shine forth.
2 Lift up yourself, you judge of the earth:
Render to the proud their desert.
3 Yahweh, how long shall the wicked,
How long shall the wicked triumph?
4 They prate, they speak arrogantly:
All the workers of iniquity boast themselves.
5 They break in pieces your people, O Yahweh,
And afflict your heritage.
6 They kill the widow and the sojourner,
And murder the fatherless.
7 And they say, Yah will not see,
Neither will the Elohim of Jacob consider.
8 Consider, you brutish among the people;
And you fools, when will you be wise?
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear?
He that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10 He that chastises the nations, shall not he correct,
Even he that teaches man knowledge?
11 Yahweh knows the thoughts of man,
That they are vanity.
12 Blessed is the man whom you correct O Yah,
And teach out of your law;
13 That you may give him rest from the days of adversity,
Until the pit is dug for the wicked.
14 For Yahweh will not cast off his people,
Neither will he forsake his inheritance.
15 For judgment shall return to righteousness;
And all the upright in heart shall follow it.
16 Who will rise up for me against the evil-doers?
Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless Yahweh had been my help,
My soul had soon dwelt in silence.
18 When I said, My foot slips;
Your lovingkindness, O Yahweh, held me up.
19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me
Your comforts delight my soul.
20 Shall the throne of wickedness have partnership with you,
Which frames mischief by statute?
21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous,
And condemn the innocent blood.
22 But Yahweh has been my high tower,
And my Elohim the rock of my refuge.
23 And he has brought upon them their own iniquity,
And will cut them off in their own wickedness;
Yahweh our Elohim will cut them off.
Oh come, let us sing to Yahweh;
Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving;
Let us make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
3 For Yahweh is a great El,
And a great King above all elohim.
4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth;
The heights of the mountains are his also.
5 The sea is his, and he made it;
And his hands formed the dry land.
6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before Yahweh our Maker:
7 For he is our Elohim,
And we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
Today, oh that you would hear his voice!
8 Harden not your heart, as at Meribah,
As in the day of Massah in the wilderness;
9 When your fathers tempted me,
Proved me, and saw my work.
10 Forty years long was I grieved with that generation,
And said, It is a people that do err in their heart,
And they have not known my ways:
11 Therefore I swore in my wrath,
That they should not enter into my rest.
Oh sing to Yahweh a new song:
Sing to Yahweh, all the earth.
2 Sing to Yahweh, bless his name;
Show forth his salvation from day to day.
3 Declare his glory among the nations,
His marvelous works among all the peoples.
4 For great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised:
He is to be feared above all elohim.
5 For all the elohim of the peoples are idols;
But Yahweh made the heavens.
6 Honor and majesty are before him:
Strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7 Ascribe to Yahweh, you kindreds of the peoples,
Ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength.
8 Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due his name.
Bring an offering, and come into his courts.
9 Oh worship Yahweh in holy array:
Tremble before him, all the earth.
10 Say among the nations, Yahweh reigns:
The world also is established that it cannot be moved:
He will judge the peoples with equity.
11 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
Let the sea roar, and the fulness of it;
12 Let the field exult, and all that is in it;
Then shall all the trees of the wood sing for joy
13 Before Yahweh; for he comes,
For he comes to judge the earth:
He will judge the world with righteousness,
And the peoples with his truth.
