Psalms Chapter 94 תְּהִלִּים
א אֵל-נְקָמוֹת יְהוָה; אֵל נְקָמוֹת הוֹפִיעַ. 1
O LORD, Thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, Thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, shine forth.
2. ב הִנָּשֵׂא, שֹׁפֵט הָאָרֶץ; הָשֵׁב גְּמוּל, עַל-גֵּאִים.
Lift up Thyself, Thou Judge of the earth; render to the proud their recompense.
ג עַד-מָתַי רְשָׁעִים יְהוָה: עַד-מָתַי, רְשָׁעִים יַעֲלֹזוּ. 3
LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked exult? 4. ד יַבִּיעוּ יְדַבְּרוּ עָתָק; יִתְאַמְּרוּ, כָּל-פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן.
They gush out, they speak arrogancy; all the workers of iniquity bear themselves loftily.
5. ה עַמְּךָ יְהוָה יְדַכְּאוּ; וְנַחֲלָתְךָ יְעַנּוּ.
They crush Thy people, O LORD, and afflict Thy heritage.
ו אַלְמָנָה וְגֵר יַהֲרֹגוּ; וִיתוֹמִים יְרַצֵּחוּ. 6
They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
ז וַיֹּאמְרוּ, לֹא יִרְאֶה-יָּהּ; וְלֹא-יָבִין, אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב. 7
And they say: 'The LORD will not see, neither will the God of Jacob give heed.'
ח בִּינוּ, בֹּעֲרִים בָּעָם; וּכְסִילִים, מָתַי תַּשְׂכִּילוּ. 8
Consider, ye brutish among the people; and ye fools, when will ye understand?
ט הֲנֹטַע אֹזֶן, הֲלֹא יִשְׁמָע; אִם-יֹצֵר עַיִן, הֲלֹא יַבִּיט. 9
He that planted the ear, shall He not hear? He that formed the eye, shall He not see?
י הֲיֹסֵר גּוֹיִם, הֲלֹא יוֹכִיחַ: הַמְלַמֵּד אָדָם דָּעַת. 10
He that instructeth nations, shall not He correct? even He that teacheth man knowledge?
יא יְהוָה--יֹדֵעַ, מַחְשְׁבוֹת אָדָם: כִּי-הֵמָּה הָבֶל. 11
The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
יב אַשְׁרֵי, הַגֶּבֶר אֲשֶׁר-תְּיַסְּרֶנּוּ יָּהּ; וּמִתּוֹרָתְךָ תְלַמְּדֶנּוּ. 12
Happy is the man whom Thou instructest, O LORD, and teachest out of Thy law;
יג לְהַשְׁקִיט לוֹ, מִימֵי רָע-- עַד יִכָּרֶה לָרָשָׁע שָׁחַת. 13
That Thou mayest give him rest from the days of evil, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
יד כִּי, לֹא-יִטֹּשׁ יְהוָה עַמּוֹ; וְנַחֲלָתוֹ, לֹא יַעֲזֹב. 14
For the LORD will not cast off His people, neither will He forsake His inheritance.
טו כִּי-עַד-צֶדֶק, יָשׁוּב מִשְׁפָּט; וְאַחֲרָיו, כָּל-יִשְׁרֵי-לֵב. 15
For right shall return unto justice, and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
טז מִי-יָקוּם לִי, עִם-מְרֵעִים; מִי-יִתְיַצֵּב לִי, עִם-פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן. 16
Who will rise up for me against the evil-doers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
יז לוּלֵי יְהוָה, עֶזְרָתָה לִּי-- כִּמְעַט, שָׁכְנָה דוּמָה נַפְשִׁי. 17
Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had soon dwelt in silence.
יח אִם-אָמַרְתִּי, מָטָה רַגְלִי; חַסְדְּךָ יְהוָה, יִסְעָדֵנִי. 18
If I say: 'My foot slippeth', Thy mercy, O LORD, holdeth me up.
יט בְּרֹב שַׂרְעַפַּי בְּקִרְבִּי-- תַּנְחוּמֶיךָ, יְשַׁעַשְׁעוּ נַפְשִׁי. 19
When my cares are many within me, Thy comforts delight my soul.
כ הַיְחָבְרְךָ, כִּסֵּא הַוּוֹת; יֹצֵר עָמָל עֲלֵי-חֹק. 20
Shall the seat of wickedness have fellowship with Thee, which frameth mischief by statute?
כא יָגוֹדּוּ, עַל-נֶפֶשׁ צַדִּיק; וְדָם נָקִי יַרְשִׁיעוּ. 21
They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood.
כב וַיְהִי יְהוָה לִי לְמִשְׂגָּב; וֵאלֹהַי, לְצוּר מַחְסִי. 22
But the LORD hath been my high tower, and my God the rock of my refuge.
23 כג וַיָּשֶׁב עֲלֵיהֶם, אֶת אוֹנָם-- וּבְרָעָתָם יַצְמִיתֵם יַצְמִיתֵם, יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ.
And He hath brought upon them their own iniquity, and will cut them off in their own evil; the LORD our God will cut them off.

I guess it's best to get a big stick and whack em to a pulp. Immediately. No beg pardons, no PC.
Psalm 83 (New International Version)
1 O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still. 2 See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads. 3 With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. 4 "Come," they say, "let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more." 5 With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you-- 6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, 7 Gebal, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre. 8 Even Assyria has joined them to lend strength to the descendants of Lot. "Selah" 9 Do to them as you did to Midian, as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon, 10 who perished at Endor and became like refuse on the ground. 11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, 12 who said, "Let us take possession of the pasturelands of God." 13 Make them like tumbleweed, O my God, like chaff before the wind. 14 As fire consumes the forest or a flame sets the mountains ablaze, 15 so pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm. 16 Cover their faces with shame so that men will seek your name, O LORD. 17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace. 18 Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD-- that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.
