Psalms Scripture Reading - Psalm 10:3-11

Psalm 10:3-11 Holman Christian Standard Bible

For the wicked one boasts about his own cravings;

the one who is greedy curses and despises the Lord.

In all his scheming,

the wicked arrogantly thinks:

“There is no accountability,

since God does not exist.”

His ways are always secure;

Your lofty judgments are beyond his sight;

he scoffs at all his adversaries.

He says to himself, “I will never be moved—

from generation to generation without calamity.”

Cursing, deceit, and violence fill his mouth;

trouble and malice are under his tongue.

He waits in ambush near the villages;

he kills the innocent in secret places.

His eyes are on the lookout for the helpless;

he lurks in secret like a lion in a thicket.

He lurks in order to seize the afflicted;

he seizes the afflicted and drags him in his net.

So he is oppressed and beaten down;

the helpless fall because of his strength.

He says to himself, “God has forgotten;

He hides His face and will never see.”
