Psalm 10
Douay-Rheims Bible

The Perils of the Pilgrim

1{9:22}Why, O Lord, hast thou retired afar off? why dost thou slight us in our wants, in the time of trouble?

2{9:23}Whilst the wicked man is proud, the poor is set on fire: they are caught in the counsels which they devise.

3{9:24}For the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul: and the unjust man is blessed.

4{9:25}The sinner hath provoked the Lord according to the multitude of his wrath he will not seek him:

5{9:26}God is not before his eyes: his ways are filthy at all times. Thy judgments are removed from his sight: he shall rule over all his enemies.

6{9:27}For he hath said in his heart: I shall not be moved from generation to generation, and shall be without evil.

7{9:28}His mouth is full of cursing, and of bitterness, and of deceit: under his tongue are labor and sorrow.

8{9:29}He sits in ambush with the rich in private places, that he may kill the innocent.

9{9:30}His eyes are upon the poor man: He lieth in wait in secret like a lion in his den. He lieth in ambush that he may catch the poor man: to catch the poor, whilst he draweth him to him.

10{9:31}In his net he will bring him down, he will crouch and fall, when he shall have power over the poor.

11{9:32}For he hath said in his heart: God hath forgotten, he hath turned away his face not to see to the end.

12{9:33}Arise, O Lord God, let thy hand be exalted: forget not the poor.

13{9:34}Wherefore hath the wicked provoked God? for he hath said in his heart: He will not require it.

14{9:35}Thou seest it, for thou considerest labour and sorrow: that thou mayst deliver them into thy hands. To thee is the poor man left: thou wilt be a helper to the orphan.

15{9:36}Break thou the arm of the sinner and of the malignant: his sin shall be sought, and shall not be found.

16{9:37}The Lord shall reign to eternity, yea, for ever and ever: ye Gentiles shall perish from his land.

17{9:38}The Lord hath heard the desire of the poor: thy ear hath heard the preparation of their heart.

18{9:39}To judge for the fatherless and for the humble, that man may no more presume to magnify himself upon earth.
