But the Lord [a]abides forever;
He has established His throne for judgment,
And He will judge the world in righteousness;
He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.
[b]The Lord also will be a stronghold for the oppressed,
A stronghold in times of trouble;
And [c]those who know Your name will put their trust in You,
For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.
Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion;
Declare among the peoples His deeds.
For He who [d]requires blood remembers them;
He does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
