Psalm 94
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

God of Vengeance, Shine Forth

1O Yahweh, God of [†]vengeance,

God of [†]vengeance, [†]shine forth!

2Be lifted up, O Judge of the earth,

Render recompense to the proud.

3How long shall the wicked, O Yahweh,

How long shall the wicked exult?

4They pour forth words, they speak arrogantly;

All workers of iniquity vaunt themselves.

5They crush Your people, O Yahweh,

And afflict Your inheritance.

6They slay the widow and the sojourner

And murder the orphans.

7They have said, “Yah does not see,

Nor does the God of Jacob discern.”

8Discern, you senseless among the people;

And when will you have insight, you fools?

9He who planted the ear, [†]does He not hear?

He who formed the eye, [†]does He not see?

10He who [†]disciplines the nations, will He not rebuke,

Even He who teaches man knowledge?

11Yahweh knows the thoughts of man,

[†]That they are vanity.

12Blessed is the man whom You discipline, O Yah,

And whom You teach out of Your law;

13That You may grant him calm from the days of calamity,

Until a pit is dug for the wicked.

14For Yahweh will not abandon His people,

Nor will He forsake His inheritance.

15For [†]judgment will [†]again be righteous,

And all the upright in heart will [†]follow it.

16Who will arise for me against evildoers?

Who will take his stand for me against workers of iniquity?

17If Yahweh had not been my help,

My soul would soon have dwelt in the abode of silence.

18If I should say, “My foot has stumbled,”

Your lovingkindness, O Yahweh, will hold me up.

19When my anxious thoughts [†]multiply within me,

Your consolations delight my soul.

20Can a [†]throne of destruction be allied with You,

One which forms [†]trouble by statute?

21They band themselves together against the [†]life of the righteous

And condemn [†]the innocent to death.

22But Yahweh has been my stronghold,

And my God the rock of my refuge.

23He has brought back their [†]iniquity upon them

And will [†]destroy them in their evil;

Yahweh our God will [†]destroy them.
