“Must it be the sinners still, Lord, the sinners still that triumph? … See, Lord, how they crush down thy people, afflict the land of thy choice, murder the widow and the stranger, slay the orphan! And they think, The Lord will never see it, the God of Israel pays no heed. Pay heed, rather, yourselves, dull hearts that count among my people; fools, learn your lesson ere it is too late. Is he deaf, the God who implanted hearing in us; is he blind, the God who gave us eyes to see? He who gives nations their schooling, who taught man all that man knows, will he not call you to account?” (Psalm xciv, 3, 5-10)
