    Comments of interest on the entire 10th Psalm, I as see as a sentiment about God championing the cause of the oppressed.

    Why, O Jehovah, do You stand far off? Why do You hide Yourself in times of distress? (v.1)

    Arrogantly the wicked hotly pursue the poor -
    May they be caught in the plots that they devise! (v.2)

    Psalm 10 cont.

    For the wicked man boasts of the desire of his soul, And the rapacious man curses, even despises, Jehovah. (v.3)

    The wicked man, according to the haughtiness of his countenance, Says, He will not require it;

    All his thoughts are this: There is no God! (v.4)

    Psalm 10 cont. still

    His [the wicked] ways succeed at all times;
    Your judgments are on high, out of his sight;
    As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them. (v.5)

    He has said in his heart, I will not be shaken;
    I will be in no trouble forever. (v.6)

    His mouth is full of curses and of deceit and oppression;
    Under his tongue are mischief and iniquity. (v.7)

    Psalms 9 and 10 were possibly originally one poem. As with all poetry there is much emotion in the writers mood, especially with David who was chosen by God to walk a special path. I prefer this section from the opening of the duet of 9 and 10:

    I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
    I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
    2 I will be glad and rejoice in you;
    I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.
    3 My enemies turn back;
    they stumble and perish before you.
    4 For you have upheld my right and my cause,
    sitting enthroned as the righteous judge.
    5 You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked;
    you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
    6 Endless ruin has overtaken my enemies,
    you have uprooted their cities;
    even the memory of them has perished.

    Cont.
    He sits in the ambushes of the open villages; In hidden places he murders the innocent;
    His eyes secretly watch for the unfortunate. (v.8)

    He lurks in secret like a lion in its covert; He lurks ready to seize the poor;

    He seizes the poor, drawing them up in his net. (v.9)

    He stoops, he crouches, And the unfortunate fall by his mighty claws. (v.10)

    Interesting. I don't see a reference in my English version to David at the top of Psalm 10.

    Cont.

    He has said in his heart, God has forgotten;
    He has hidden His face; He will never see this. (v.11)

    Arise, O Jehovah; O God, lift up Your hand.
    Do not forget the poor. (v.12)

    Psalm 10:13-14

    Why does the wicked man despise God and say in his heart, You will not require it? (v.13)

    You do see! For You observe mischief and vexation, to require it with Your own hand.

    To You the unfortunate one commits his cause;
    You have been the help of the orphan. (v.14)

    I would ask you to close out verses 15 - 18 of Psalm 10.
    But just in case my asking is presumptuous ...

    Break the arm of the wicked man and the evil doer; Seek out his wickedness until You find no more.(v.15)

    Jehovah is King forever and ever; The nations have perished from His land. (v.16)


    Closing -

    You have heard the desire of the lowly, O Jehovah;
    You will establish their heart;
    You still cause Your ears to listen, (v.17)

    In order to execute justice for the orphan and the oppressed one,
    That the mortal man of the earth may terrorize no longer. (v.18)


    What about this psalm folks?
    Some of it reminds me of ME ... on either side!

    Can you recall a particular thread that divegeester started or maybe a sequence of posts by him where he laid out a "There is no God" thesis?

    This is the second post in a row where you have joined a thread and contributed nothing other than to attack me.

    The word of God catches us all.
    Don't you feel convicted by something in all these utterances?

    At times we have the thoughts of the wicked here - "God will not require it. God does not see or care. I'll get away surely."

    Who doesn't have hopes like this sometime?

    Why do you think it is funny that (according to your beliefs) billions of people will be burnt alive for eternity?
