Lord, use your power to deliver me from these murderers, 1 from the murderers of this world! 2 They enjoy prosperity; 3 you overwhelm them with the riches they desire. 4 They have many children, and leave their wealth to their offspring. 5
Ephraim will be struck down 1 – their root will be dried up; they will not yield any fruit. Even if they do bear children, I will kill their precious offspring.
