Psalm 94 or
Coverdale
Deus ultionum

1O LORD God of vengeance, *
O God of vengeance, show yourself.

2Rise up, O Judge of the world; *
give the arrogant their just deserts.

3How long shall the wicked, O LORD, *
how long shall the wicked triumph?

4They bluster in their insolence; *
all evildoers are full of boasting.

5They crush your people, O LORD, *
and afflict your chosen nation.

6They murder the widow and the stranger *
and put the orphans to death.

7Yet they say, "The LORD does not see, *
the God of Jacob takes no notice."

8Consider well, you dullards among the people; *
when will you fools understand?

9He that planted the ear, does he not hear? *
he that formed the eye, does he not see?

10He who admonishes the nations, will he not punish? *
he who teaches all the world, has he no knowledge?

11The LORD knows our human thoughts; *
how like a puff of wind they are.

12Happy are they whom you instruct, O Lord! *
whom you teach out of your law;

13To give them rest in evil days, *
until a pit is dug for the wicked.

14For the LORD will not abandon his people, *
nor will he forsake his own.

15For judgment will again be just, *
and all the true of heart will follow it.

16Who rose up for me against the wicked? *
who took my part against the evildoers?

17If the LORD had not come to my help, *
I should soon have dwelt in the land of silence.

18As often as I said, "My foot has slipped," *
your love, O LORD, upheld me.

19When many cares fill my mind, *
your consolations cheer my soul.

20Can a corrupt tribunal have any part with you, *
one which frames evil into law?

21They conspire against the life of the just *
and condemn the innocent to death.

22But the LORD has become my stronghold, *
and my God the rock of my trust.

23He will turn their wickedness back upon them
and destroy them in their own malice; *
the LORD our God will destroy them.
