Why is life given to the evil-doers? why do they become old and strong in power?
But you, O God, will send them down into the underworld; the cruel and the false will be cut off before half their days are ended; but I will have faith in you.
You are in the right, O Lord, when I put my cause before you: still let me take up with you the question of your decisions: why does the evil-doer do well? why are the workers of deceit living in comfort?
2 Peter 2:9
The Lord is able to keep the upright safe in the time of testing, and to keep evil-doers under punishment till the day of judging;
For I was a saviour to the poor when he was crying for help, to the child with no father, and to him who had no supporter.
When he makes search for blood, he has them in his memory: he is not without thought for the cry of the poor.
You have seen it; for your eyes are on sorrow and grief, to take it into your hand: the poor man puts his faith in you; you have been the helper of the child who has no father.
May he be a judge of the poor among the people, may he give salvation to the children of those who are in need; by him let the violent be crushed.
God is in the meeting-place of God; he is judging among the gods.
Do not take away the property of the poor man because he is poor, or be cruel to the crushed ones when they come before the judge:
But he will do right in the cause of the poor, and give wise decisions for those in the land who are in need; and the rod of his mouth will come down on the cruel, and with the breath of his lips he will put an end to the evil-doer.
