A Prayer For God To Throw Down The Wicked

1 Lord, why do You stand so far away?
Why do You hide in times of trouble?
2 In arrogance the wicked relentlessly pursue the afflicted;
let them be caught in the schemes they have devised.
3 For the wicked one boasts about his own cravings;
the one who is greedy curses and despises the Lord.
