Psalm 94. Deus ultionum.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Eighteenth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth, *
    thou God, to whom vengeance belongeth, show thyself.
  2. Arise, thou Judge of the world, *
    and reward the proud after their deserving.
  3. Lord, how long shall the ungodly, *
    how long shall the ungodly triumph?
  4. How long shall all wicked doers speak so disdainfully, *
    and make such proud boasting?
  5. They smite down thy people, O Lord, *
    and trouble thine heritage.
  6. They murder the widow and the stranger, *
    and put the fatherless to death.
  7. And yet they say, Tush, the Lord shall not see, *
    neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
  8. Take heed, ye unwise among the people: *
    O ye fools, when will ye understand?
  9. He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? *
    or he that made the eye, shall he not see?
  10. Or he that instructeth the heathen, *
    it is he that teacheth man knowledge; shall not he punish?
  11. The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, *
    that they are but vain.
  12. Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, *
    and teachest him in thy law;
  13. That thou mayest give him patience in time of adversity, *
    until the pit be digged up for the ungodly.
  14. For the Lord will not fail his people; *
    neither will he forsake his inheritance;
  15. Until righteousness turn again unto judgment: *
    all such as are true in heart shall follow it.
  16. Who will rise up with me against the wicked? *
    or who will take my part against the evil doers?
  17. If the Lord had not helped me, *
    it had not failed, but my soul had been put to silence.
  18. But when I said, My foot hath slipt; *
    thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.
  19. In the multitude of the sorrows that I had in my heart, *
    thy comforts have refreshed my soul.
  20. Wilt thou have any thing to do with the throne of wickedness, *
    which imagineth mischief as a law?
  21. They gather them together against the soul of the righteous, *
    and condemn the innocent blood.
  22. But the Lord is my refuge, *
    and my God is the strength of my confidence.
  23. He shall recompense them their wickedness, and destroy them in their own malice; *
    yea, the Lord our God shall destroy them.
