Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it. (Psalms 10:1-11)

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. "..."They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD. (Psalms 14:1,3-4)

vestures of fine linen, ..."(Genesis 41:42 Kjv)

Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me.How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it.His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty.For what pleasure hath he in his house after him, when the number of his months is cut off in the midst?Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high. One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet.His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow. And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them. Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which ye wrongfully imagine against me.For ye say, Where is the house of the prince? and where are the dwelling places of the wicked?Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay him what he hath done?Yet shall he be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb.The clods of the valley shall be sweet unto him, and every man shall draw after him, as there are innumerable before him.(Job 21:14-33)
