Psalm 17:10-14

10-14Their hearts are hard as nails,

their mouths blast hot air.

They are after me, nipping my heels,

determined to bring me down,

Lions ready to rip me apart,

young lions poised to pounce.

Up, God: beard them! break them!

By your sword, free me from their clutches;

Barehanded, God, break these mortals,

these flat-earth people who can't think beyond today.

I'd like to see their bellies

swollen with famine food,

The weeds they've sown

harvested and baked into famine bread,

With second helpings for their children

and crusts for their babies to chew on.

15And me? I plan on looking

you full in the face. When I get up,

I'll see your full stature

and live heaven on earth.
