94:1 Yahweh, you God to whom vengeance belongs, You God to whom vengeance belongs, shine forth.
94:2 Rise up, you judge of the earth. Pay back the proud what they deserve.
94:3 Yahweh, how long will the wicked, How long will the wicked triumph?
94:4 They pour out arrogant words. All the evil-doers boast.
94:5 They break your people in pieces, Yahweh, And afflict your heritage.
94:6 They kill the widow and the alien, And murder the fatherless.
94:7 They say, "Yah will not see, Neither will Jacob's God consider."
94:8 Consider, you senseless among the people; You fools, when will you be wise?
94:9 He who implanted the ear, won't he hear? He who formed the eye, won't he see?
94:10 He who disciplines the nations, won't he punish? He who teaches man knows.
94:11 Yahweh knows the thoughts of man, That they are futile.
94:12 Blessed is the man whom you discipline, Yah, And teach out of your law;
94:13 That you may give him rest from the days of adversity, Until the pit is dug for the wicked.
94:14 For Yahweh won't reject his people, Neither will he forsake his inheritance.
94:15 For judgment will return to righteousness. All the upright in heart shall follow it.
94:16 Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will stand up for me against the evil-doers?
94:17 Unless Yahweh had been my help, My soul would have soon lived in silence.
94:18 When I said, "My foot is slipping!" Your loving kindness, Yahweh, held me up.
94:19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me, Your comforts delight my soul.
94:20 Shall the throne of wickedness have fellowship with you, Which brings about mischief by statute?
94:21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, And condemn the innocent blood.
94:22 But Yahweh has been my high tower, My God, the rock of my refuge.
94:23 He has brought on them their own iniquity, And will cut them off in their own wickedness. Yahweh, our God, will cut them off.
