94:1 O God, in whose hands is punishment, O God of punishment, let your shining face be seen.
94:2 Be lifted up, O judge of the earth; let their reward come to the men of pride.
94:3 How long will sinners, O Lord, how long will sinners have joy over us?
94:4 Words of pride come from their lips; all the workers of evil say great things of themselves.
94:5 Your people are crushed by them, O Lord, your heritage is troubled,
94:6 They put to death the widow and the guest, they take the lives of children who have no father;
94:7 And they say, Jah will not see it, the God of Jacob will not give thought to it.
94:8 Give your mind to my words, you who are without wisdom among the people; you foolish men, when will you be wise?
94:9 Has he by whom your ears were planted no hearing? or is he blind by whom your eyes were formed?
94:10 He who is the judge of the nations, will he not give men the reward of their acts, even he who gives knowledge to man?
94:11 The Lord has knowledge of the thoughts of man, for they are only a breath.
94:12 Happy is the man who is guided by you, O Jah, and to whom you give teaching out of your law;
94:13 So that you may give him rest from the days of evil, till a hole is made ready for the destruction of the sinners.
94:14 The Lord will not give up his people, or take away his support from his heritage;
94:15 But decisions will again be made in righteousness; and they will be kept by all whose hearts are true.
94:16 Who will give me help against the sinners? and who will be my support against the workers of evil?
94:17 If the Lord had not been my helper, my soul would quickly have gone down into death.
94:18 If I say, My foot is slipping; your mercy, O Lord, is my support.
94:19 Among all my troubled thoughts, your comforts are the delight of my soul.
94:20 What part with you has the seat of sin, which makes evil into a law?
94:21 They are banded together against the soul of the upright, to give decisions against those who have done no wrong.
94:22 But the Lord is my safe resting-place; my God is the Rock where I am safe.
94:23 And he has made their evil designs come back on themselves, cutting them off in their sin; the Lord our God will put an end to them.
