There they cry out, but he does not answer
because of the pride of evildoers. Bible see other translations

“he does not answer.” God does not hear prayers simply because people pray. Everyone sins, but some people are prideful and unrepentant about their sin, and God will not listen to the prayers of those people. It is the prayer of a righteous person that accomplishes much (James 5:16).
