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.”
