Psalm 94
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

The LORD Will Not Forget His People

1(93:1) A Psalm of David for the fourth day of the week. The Lord is a God of vengeance; the God of vengeance has declared himself.

2(93:2) Be thou exalted, thou that judgest the earth: render a reward to the proud.

3(93:3) How long shall sinners, O Lord, how long shall sinners boast?

4(93:4) They will utter and speak unrighteousness; all the workers of iniquity will speak so.

5(93:5) They have afflicted thy people, O Lord, and hurt thine heritage.

6(93:6) They have slain the widow and fatherless, and murdered the stranger.

7(93:7) And they said, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob understand.

8(93:8) Understand now, ye simple among the people; and ye fools, at length be wise.

9(93:9) He that planted the ear, does he not hear? or he that formed the eye, does not he perceive?

10(93:10) He that chastises the heathen, shall not he punish, even he that teaches man knowledge?

11(93:11) The Lord knows the thoughts of men, that they are vain.

12(93:12) Blessed is the man whomsoever thou shalt chasten, O Lord, and shalt teach him out of thy law;

13(93:13) to give him rest from evil days, until a pit be digged for the sinful one.

14(93:14) For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance;

15(93:15) until righteousness return to judgment, and all the upright in heart shall follow it. Pause.

16(93:16) Who will rise up for me against the transgressors? or who will stand up with me against the workers of iniquity?

17(93:17) If the Lord had not helped me, my soul had almost sojourned in Hades.

18(93:18) If I said, My foot has been moved;

19(93:19) thy mercy, O Lord, helped me. O Lord, according to the multitude of my griefs within my heart, thy consolation have soothed my soul.

20(93:20) Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frames mischief by an ordinance?

21(93:21) They will hunt for the soul of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood.

22(93:22) But the Lord was my refuge; and my God the helper of my hope.

23(93:23) And he will recompense to them their iniquity and their wickedness: the Lord our God shall utterly destroy them.
