Lord, avenging God, avenging God, shine forth!
Rise up, judge of the earth; give the proud what they deserve.
How long, Lord, shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked glory?
How long will they mouth haughty speeches, go on boasting, all these evildoers?
They crush your people, Lord, torment your very own.
They kill the widow and alien; the fatherless they murder.
They say, “The Lord does not see; the God of Jacob takes no notice.”
