1God of vengeance, Yahweh, God of vengeance, shine forth! 2Arise, judge of the world, give back the proud what they deserve! 3How long are the wicked, Yahweh, how long are the wicked to triumph? 4They bluster and boast, they flaunt themselves, all the evil-doers. 5They crush your people, Yahweh, they oppress your heritage, 6they murder the widow and the stranger, bring the orphan to a violent death. 7They say, 'Yahweh is not looking, the God of Jacob is taking no notice.' 8Take notice yourselves, you coarsest of people! Fools, when wil you learn some sense? 9Shal he who implanted the ear not hear, he who fashioned the eye not see? 10Shal he who instructs nations not punish? Yahweh, the teacher of al people, 11knows human plans and how insipid they are. 12How blessed are those you instruct, Yahweh, whom you teach by means of your law, 13to give them respite in evil times, til a pit is dug for the wicked. 14Yahweh will not abandon his people, he wil not desert his heritage; 15for judgement will again become saving justice, and in its wake al upright hearts will fol ow. 16Who rises up on my side against the wicked? Who stands firm on my side against al evil-doers? 17If Yahweh did not come to my help, I should soon find myself dwel ing in the silence. 18I need only say, 'I am slipping,' for your faithful love, Yahweh, to support me; 19however great the anxiety of my heart, your consolations soothe me. 20Are you partner to a destructive court, that gives disorder the status of law? 21They make an attack on the life of the upright, and condemn innocent blood. 22No! Yahweh is a stronghold to me, my God is my rock of refuge. 23He turns back their guilt on themselves, annihilates them for their wickedness, he annihilates them,Yahweh our God.
