He lurketh in secret as a lion in his covert; He lieth in wait to catch the poor: He doth catch the poor, when he draweth him in his net.
10He croucheth, he boweth down, And the helpless fall by his strong ones.
11He saith in his heart, God hath forgotten; He hideth his face; he will never see it.
12Arise, O Jehovah; O God, lift up thy hand: Forget not the poor.
13Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God, And say in his heart, Thou wilt not require it ?
14Thou hast seen it ; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: The helpless committeth himself unto thee; Thou hast been the helper of the fatherless.
15Break thou the arm of the wicked; And as for the evil man, seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
16Jehovah is King for ever and ever: The nations are perished out of his land.
17Jehovah, thou hast heard the desire of the meek: Thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear;
18To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, That man who is of the earth may be terrible no more.
