David complaineth to God of the outrage of the wicked.
Psalms 10:1 Wherefore, O Yahweh, shouldst thou stand afar off? [Wherefore] hide thyself, in times of destitution? Psalms 10:2 In the pride of the lawless one, he hotly pursueth the poor, let them be caught in the plots which they have devised! Psalms 10:3 For the lawless one hath boasted over the longing of his soul, and, the robber, hath blasphemed Yahweh. Psalms 10:4 The lawless one, in the loftiness of his countenance, will not enquire, God is not in any of his plots: Psalms 10:5 His ways are firm at all times, On high, are thy righteous regulations, out of his sight, As for all his adversaries, he puffeth at them: Psalms 10:6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be shaken,From generation to generation, shall I be in no misfortune. Psalms 10:7 With cursing, his mouth is full, and with deceptions and oppression, Under his tongue, are trouble and mischief: Psalms 10:8 He abideth in the lurking-place of villages, In the hiding-places, he murdereth the innocent,His eyes, for the unfortunate, are on the watch: Psalms 10:9 He lieth in wait in a hiding-place, like a lion in his covert, He lieth in wait to catch the humbled, He catcheth the humbled, by drawing him into his net: Psalms 10:10 He croucheth, he lieth down, then falleth he with his strong claws upon the unfortunate. Psalms 10:11 He hath said in his heart, GOD hath forgotten,He hath veiled his face, Oh he hath never seen!
He prayeth for remedy.
Psalms 10:12 Arise! Yahweh! O GOD! raise thy hand,Do not forget the patient! Psalms 10:13 Wherefore hath the lawless one blasphemed God? He hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require [it]! Psalms 10:14 Thou hast seen! For, thou, mischief and misery, dost discern, to requite with thine own hand, Unto thee, doth, the unfortunate one, give himself up, To the fatherless, thou thyself, hast become a helper. Psalms 10:15 Shatter thou the arm of the lawless one, And, as for the wrongful, wilt thou not enquire for his lawlessnesswilt thou not find [it]?
He professeth his confidence.
Psalms 10:16 Yahweh, is king, to times age-abiding and beyond, The nations have perished out of his land. Psalms 10:17 The longing of the patient, thou hast heard, O Yahweh, Thou wilt establish their heart, Thou wilt make attentive thine ear: Psalms 10:18 To vindicate the fatherless and the crushed, A man of the earth, shall, no further, cause terror!
