Psalm 10:7-9 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

They are always cursing, lying,
    and planning evil things to do.
They hide just outside the villages,
    waiting to kill innocent people,
    always looking for any helpless person they can hurt.
They are like lions hiding in the bushes
    to catch weak and helpless animals.
They lay their traps for the poor,
    who are caught in their nets.

Psalm 10:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

His mouth is full of lies and threats;
    trouble and evil are under his tongue.
He lies in wait near the villages;
    from ambush he murders the innocent.
His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
    like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
    he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
