Psalms 10:14-18 (Amplified Bible)
10:14 You have seen it; yes, You note trouble and grief (vexation) to requite it with Your hand. The unfortunate commits himself to You; You are the helper of the fatherless.
10:15 Break the arm of the wicked man; and as for the evil man, search out his wickedness until You find no more.
