A Prayer For God To Throw Down The Wicked

1 Wherefore, O Yahweh, shouldst thou stand afar off? Wherefore hide thyself, in times of destitution? 2 In the pride of the lawless one, he hotly pursueth the poor, let them be caught in the plots which they have devised! 3 For the lawless one hath boasted over the longing of his soul, and, the robber, hath blasphemed Yahweh.
