Are You not from time everlasting, LORD, my God, my Holy One? We will not die. You, LORD, have appointed them to deliver
judgment; And You, O Rock, have destined them to punish.
eyes are too pure to look at evil, And You cannot look at harm favorably.
Why do You look favorably
At those who deal treacherously? Why
are You silent when the wicked swallow up Those more righteous than they?
have You made people like the fish of the sea, Like crawling things that have no ruler over them?
bring all of them up with a hook, Drag them away with their net, And gather them together in their fishing net. Therefore they rejoice and are joyful.
Therefore they offer a sacrifice to their net And burn incense to their fishing net, Because through these things their catch is large, And their food is plentiful.
Will they therefore empty their net, And continually slay nations without sparing?
