Bible: Ps 10:3-11

10:3 Yes, 1  the wicked man 2  boasts because he gets what he wants; 3 

the one who robs others 4  curses 5  and 6  rejects the Lord. 7 

10:4 The wicked man is so arrogant he always thinks,

“God won’t hold me accountable; he doesn’t care.” 8 

10:5 He is secure at all times. 9 

He has no regard for your commands; 10 

he disdains all his enemies. 11 

10:6 He says to himself, 12 

“I will never 13  be upended,

because I experience no calamity.” 14 

10:7 His mouth is full of curses and deceptive, harmful words; 15 

his tongue injures and destroys. 16 

10:8 He waits in ambush near the villages; 17 

in hidden places he kills the innocent.

His eyes look for some unfortunate victim. 18 

10:9 He lies in ambush in a hidden place, like a lion in a thicket; 19 

he lies in ambush, waiting to catch 20  the oppressed;

he catches the oppressed 21  by pulling in his net. 22 

10:10 His victims are crushed and beaten down;

they are trapped in his sturdy nets. 23 

10:11 He says to himself, 24 

“God overlooks it;

he does not pay attention;

he never notices.” 25
