Psalm 94 — Rise Up, Oh Judge!

Oh Lord, how long will evil win?
How long will hate and harm prevail?
Rise up, oh Judge! Repay their sin,
And make their work to no avail.

They slay the widow and the waif
They kill the stranger alien.
Rise up, oh Judge! And keep us safe,
For You, God, know the thoughts of man.
