Psalm 94:1-23 NIV

Psalm 94:1-23 NIV [1] The LORD is a God who avenges. O God who avenges, shine forth. [2] Rise up, Judge of the earth; pay back to the proud what they deserve. [3] How long, LORD, will the wicked, how long will the wicked be jubilant? [4] They pour out arrogant words; all the evildoers are full of boasting. [5] They crush your people, LORD; they oppress your inheritance. [6] They slay the widow and the foreigner; they murder the fatherless. [7] They say, "The LORD does not see; the God of Jacob takes no notice." [8] Take notice, you senseless ones among the people; you fools, when will you become wise? [9] Does he who fashioned the ear not hear? Does he who formed the eye not see? [10] Does he who disciplines nations not punish? Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge? [11] The LORD knows all human plans; he knows that they are futile. [12] Blessed is the one you discipline, LORD, the one you teach from your law; [13] you grant them relief from days of trouble, till a pit is dug for the wicked. [14] For the LORD will not reject his people; he will never forsake his inheritance. [15] Judgment will again be founded on righteousness, and all the upright in heart will follow it. [16] Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers? [17] Unless the LORD had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. [18] When I said, "My foot is slipping," your unfailing love, LORD, supported me. [19] When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. [20] Can a corrupt throne be allied with you-a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? [21] The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. [22] But the LORD has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge. [23] He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the LORD our God will destroy them.
