A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his words,
And the deeds of a man’s hands will return to him.
Requite them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices;
Requite them according to the deeds of their hands;
Repay them their recompense.
Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him,
For what he deserves will be done to him.
The LORD has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there are any who understand, Who seek after God. They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one. Do all the workers of wickedness not know, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And do not call upon the Lord?
Do not drag me away with the wicked And with those who work iniquity, Who speak peace with their neighbors, While evil is in their hearts. Requite them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices; Requite them according to the deeds of their hands; Repay them their recompense. Because they do not regard the works of the LORD Nor the deeds of His hands, He will tear them down and not build them up.
For, behold, Your enemies, O Lord,
For, behold, Your enemies will perish;
All who do iniquity will be scattered.
How long shall the wicked, O LORD, How long shall the wicked exult? They pour forth words, they speak arrogantly; All who do wickedness vaunt themselves. They crush Your people, O LORD, And afflict Your heritage. read more.
They slay the widow and the stranger And murder the orphans. They have said, "The LORD does not see, Nor does the God of Jacob pay heed."
The way of the Lord is a stronghold to the upright,
But ruin to the workers of iniquity.
The exercise of justice is joy for the righteous,
But is terror to the workers of iniquity.
