Psalm 94 1 O Lord, the God of vengeance,     O God of vengeance, let your glorious justice shine forth! 2 Arise, O Judge of the earth.     Give the proud what they deserve. 3 How long, O Lord?     How long will the wicked be allowed to gloat? 4 How long will they speak with arrogance?     How long will these evil people boast? 5 They crush your people, Lord,     hurting those you claim as your own. 6 They kill widows and foreigners     and murder orphans. 7 “The Lord isn’t looking,” they say,     “and besides, the God of Israel[a] doesn’t care.” 8 Think again, you fools!     When will you finally catch on? 9 Is he deaf—the one who made your ears?     Is he blind—the one who formed your eyes? 10 He punishes the nations—won’t he also punish you?     He knows everything—doesn’t he also know what you are doing? 11 The Lord knows people’s thoughts;     he knows they are worthless! 12 Joyful are those you discipline, Lord,     those you teach with your instructions. 13 You give them relief from troubled times     until a pit is dug to capture the wicked. 14 The Lord will not reject his people;     he will not abandon his special possession. 15 Judgment will again be founded on justice,     and those with virtuous hearts will pursue it. 16 Who will protect me from the wicked?     Who will stand up for me against evildoers? 17 Unless the Lord had helped me,     I would soon have settled in the silence of the grave. 18 I cried out, “I am slipping!”     but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me. 19 When doubts filled my mind,     your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. 20 Can unjust leaders claim that God is on their side—     leaders whose decrees permit injustice? 21 They gang up against the righteous     and condemn the innocent to death. 22 But the Lord is my fortress;     my God is the mighty rock where I hide. 23 God will turn the sins of evil people back on them.     He will destroy them for their sins.     The Lord our God will destroy them. Footnotes 94:7 Hebrew of Jacob. See note on 44:4.   Ruth 1   New Living Translation     Elimelech Moves His Family to Moab 1 In the days when the judges ruled in Israel, a severe famine came upon the land. So a man from Bethlehem in Judah left his home and went to live in the country of Moab, taking his wife and two sons with him. 2 The man’s name was Elimelech, and his wife was Naomi. Their two sons were Mahlon and Kilion. They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem in the land of Judah. And when they reached Moab, they settled there. 3 Then Elimelech died, and Naomi was left with her two sons. 4 The two sons married Moabite women. One married a woman named Orpah, and the other a woman named Ruth. But about ten years later, 5 both Mahlon and Kilion died. This left Naomi alone, without her two sons or her husband. Naomi and Ruth Return 6 Then Naomi heard in Moab that the Lord had blessed his people in Judah by giving them good crops again. So Naomi and her daughters-in-law got ready to leave Moab to return to her homeland. 7 With her two daughters-in-law she set out from the place where she had been living, and they took the road that would lead them back to Judah. 8 But on the way, Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go back to your mothers’ homes. And may the Lord reward you for your kindness to your husbands and to me. 9 May the Lord bless you with the security of another marriage.” Then she kissed them good-bye, and they all broke down and wept. 10 “No,” they said. “We want to go with you to your people.” 11 But Naomi replied, “Why should you go on with me? Can I still give birth to other sons who could grow up to be your husbands? 12 No, my daughters, return to your parents’ homes, for I am too old to marry again. And even if it were possible, and I were to get married tonight and bear sons, then what? 13 Would you wait for them to grow up and refuse to marry someone else? No, of course not, my daughters! Things are far more bitter for me than for you, because the Lord himself has raised his fist against me.” 14 And again they wept together, and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law good-bye. But Ruth clung tightly to Naomi. 15 “Look,” Naomi said to her, “your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods. You should do the same.” 16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you
