Salmos 10

Lámed

1¿Por qué, Señor, te mantienes distante?
    ¿Por qué te escondes en momentos de angustia?
Con arrogancia persigue el malvado al indefenso,
    pero se enredará en sus propias artimañas.
El malvado hace alarde de su propia codicia;
    alaba al ambicioso y menosprecia al Señor.
El malvado levanta insolente la nariz,
    y no da lugar a Dios en sus pensamientos.
Todas sus empresas son siempre exitosas;
    tan altos y alejados de él están tus juicios
    que se burla de todos sus enemigos.
Y se dice a sí mismo: «Nada me hará caer.
    Siempre seré feliz. Nunca tendré problemas».

Pe

Llena está su boca de maldiciones,
    de mentiras y amenazas;
    bajo su lengua esconde maldad y violencia.
Se pone al acecho en las aldeas,
    se esconde en espera de sus víctimas,
    y asesina a mansalva al inocente.

Ayin

Cual león en su guarida se agazapa,
    listo para atrapar al indefenso;
    le cae encima y lo arrastra en su red.
10 Bajo el peso de su poder,
    sus víctimas caen por tierra.
11 Se dice a sí mismo: «Dios se ha olvidado.
    Se cubre el rostro. Nunca ve nada».

Qof

12 ¡Levántate, Señor!
    ¡Levanta, oh Dios, tu brazo!
    ¡No te olvides de los indefensos!
13 ¿Por qué te ha de menospreciar el malvado?
    ¿Por qué ha de pensar que no lo llamarás a cuentas?

Resh

14 Pero tú ves la opresión y la violencia,
    las tomas en cuenta y te harás cargo de ellas.
Las víctimas confían en ti;
    tú eres la ayuda de los huérfanos.

Shin

15 ¡Rómpeles el brazo al malvado y al impío!
    ¡Pídeles cuentas de su maldad,
    y haz que desaparezcan por completo!

16 El Señor es rey eterno;
    los paganos serán borrados de su tierra.

Tav

17 Tú, Señor, escuchas la petición de los indefensos,
    les infundes aliento y atiendes a su clamor.
18 Tú defiendes al huérfano y al oprimido,
    para que el hombre, hecho de tierra,
    no siga ya sembrando el terror.

Psalm 10

A Prayer for the Overthrow of the Wicked.

1Why do You stand afar off, O Lord?
Why do You hide [a]Yourself in times of trouble?
In pride the wicked [b]hotly pursue the afflicted;
[c]Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised.

For the wicked boasts of his heart’s desire,
And [d]the greedy man curses and spurns the Lord.
The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him.
All his [e]thoughts are, “There is no God.”

His ways [f]prosper at all times;
Your judgments are on high, out of his sight;
As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them.
He says to himself, “I will not be moved;
[g]Throughout all generations I will not be in adversity.”
His mouth is full of curses and deceit and oppression;
Under his tongue is mischief and wickedness.
He sits in the lurking places of the villages;
In the hiding places he kills the innocent;
His eyes [h]stealthily watch for the [i]unfortunate.
He lurks in a hiding place as a lion in his [j]lair;
He lurks to catch the afflicted;
He catches the afflicted when he draws him into his net.
10 He [k]crouches, he [l]bows down,
And the [m]unfortunate fall [n]by his mighty ones.
11 He says to himself, “God has forgotten;
He has hidden His face; He will never see it.”

12 Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up Your hand.
Do not forget the afflicted.
13 Why has the wicked spurned God?
He has said to himself, “You will not require it.”
14 You have seen it, for You have beheld mischief and vexation to [o]take it into Your hand.
The [p]unfortunate commits himself to You;
You have been the helper of the orphan.
15 Break the arm of the wicked and the evildoer,
[q]Seek out his wickedness until You find none.

16 The Lord is King forever and ever;
Nations have perished from His land.
17 O Lord, You have heard the desire of the [r]humble;
You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear
18 To [s]vindicate the orphan and the oppressed,
So that man who is of the earth will no longer cause terror.
