"Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.Psalm 10:12-18 (NIV)
Do not forget the helpless.
Why does the wicked man revile God?
Why does he say to himself,
'He won't call me to account'?
But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless.
Break the arm of the wicked man;
call the evildoer to account for his wickedness

The Lord is King for ever and ever;
the nations will perish from his land.
You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror."
