94 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
O LORD, thou God of vengeance,
thou God of vengeance, shine forth!
אֵל־נְקָמֹות יְהוָה אֵל נְקָמֹות הֹופִיַע׃ The Lord, King & Judge. Psalm 94(v93)
Rise up, O judge of the earth;
render to the proud their deserts!
הִנָּשֵׂא שֹׁפֵט הָאָרֶץ הָשֵׁב גְּמוּל עַל־גֵּאִים׃  
O LORD, how long shall the wicked,
how long shall the wicked exult?
עַד־מָתַי רְשָׁעִים יְהוָה עַד־מָתַי רְשָׁעִים יַעֲלֹזוּ׃  
They pour out their arrogant words,
they boast, all the evildoers.
יַבִּיעוּ יְדַבְּרוּ עָתָק יִתְאַמְּרוּ כָּל־פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן׃  
They crush thy people, O LORD,
and afflict thy heritage.
עַמְּךָ יְהוָה יְדַכְּאוּ וְנַחֲלָתְךָ יְעַנּוּ׃  
They slay the widow and the sojourner,
and murder the fatherless;
אַלְמָנָה וְגֵר יַהֲרֹגוּ וִיתֹומִים יְרַצֵּחוּ׃  
and they say, "The LORD does not see;
the God of Jacob does not perceive."
וַיֹּאמְרוּ לֹא יִרְאֶה־יָּהּ וְלֹא־יָבִין אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב׃  
Understand, O dullest of the people!
Fools, when will you be wise?
בִּינוּ בֹּעֲרִים בָּעָם וּכְסִילִים מָתַי תַּשְׂכִּילוּ׃  
He who planted the ear, does he not hear?
He who formed the eye, does he not see?
הֲנֹטַע אֹזֶן הֲלֹא יִשְׁמָע אִם־יֹצֵר עַיִן הֲלֹא יַבִּיט׃  
He who chastens the nations, does he not chastise?
He who teaches men knowledge,
הֲיֹסֵר גֹּויִם הֲלֹא יֹוכִיחַ הַמְלַמֵּד אָדָם דָּעַת׃  
the LORD, knows the thoughts of man,
that they are but a breath.
יְהוָה יֹדֵעַ מַחְשְׁבֹות אָדָם כִּי־הֵמָּה הָבֶל׃ 
Blessed is the man whom thou dost chasten, O LORD,
and whom thou dost teach out of thy law
אַשְׁרֵי הַגֶּבֶר אֲשֶׁר־תְּיַסְּרֶנּוּ יָּהּ וּמִתֹּורָתְךָ תְלַמְּדֶנּוּ׃  
to give him respite from days of trouble,
until a pit is dug for the wicked.
לְהַשְׁקִיט לֹו מִימֵי רָע עַד יִכָּרֶה לָרָשָׁע שָׁחַת׃  
For the LORD will not forsake his people;
he will not abandon his heritage;
כִּי לֹא־יִטֹּשׁ יְהוָה עַמֹּו וְנַחֲלָתֹו לֹא יַעֲזֹב׃  
for justice will return to the righteous,
and all the upright in heart will follow it.
כִּי־עַד־צֶדֶק יָשׁוּב מִשְׁפָּט וְאַחֲרָיו כָּל־יִשְׁרֵי־לֵב׃  
Who rises up for me against the wicked?
Who stands up for me against evildoers?
מִי־יָקוּם לִי עִם־מְרֵעִים מִי־יִתְיַצֵּב לִי עִם־פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן׃  
If the LORD had not been my help,
my soul would soon have dwelt in the land of silence.
לוּלֵי יְהוָה עֶזְרָתָה לִּי כִּמְעַט שָׁכְנָה דוּמָה נַפְשִׁי׃  
When I thought, "My foot slips,"
thy steadfast love, O LORD, held me up.
אִם־אָמַרְתִּי מָטָה רַגְלִי חַסְדְּךָ יְהוָה יִסְעָדֵנִי׃  
When the cares of my heart are many,
thy consolations cheer my soul.
בְּרֹב שַׂרְעַפַּי בְּקִרְבִּי תַּנְחוּמֶיךָ יְשַׁעַשְׁעוּ נַפְשִׁי׃  
Can wicked rulers be allied with thee,
who frame mischief by statute?
הַיְחָבְרְךָ כִּסֵּא הַוֹּות יֹצֵר עָמָל עֲלֵי־חֹק׃  
They band together against the life of the righteous,
and condemn the innocent to death.
יָגֹודּוּ עַל־נֶפֶשׁ צַדִּיק וְדָם נָקִי יַרְשִׁיעוּ׃  
But the LORD has become my stronghold,
and my God the rock of my refuge.
וַיְהִי יְהוָה לִי לְמִשְׂגָּב וֵאלֹהַי לְצוּר מַחְסִי׃  
He will bring back on them their iniquity
and wipe them out for their wickedness;
the LORD our God will wipe them out.
וַיָּשֶׁב עֲלֵיהֶם אֶת־אֹונָם וּבְרָעָתָם יַצְמִיתֵם יַצְמִיתֵם יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ׃  
      << | Psalms: 94 | >>
