Go to Commentary on Ps 10
 

 1 Why do you stand at a distance, O Yahweh?

 Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

 

 2 In arrogance, a wicked person hunts down an afflicted.

 They will be caught in the schemes that they devised.

 

 
3 
For the wicked person boasts of his soul’s cravings.

 He blesses the greedy and curses Yahweh.

 

 4 The wicked person, in the pride of his face,

 does not seek God. “There is no God” is in all his thoughts.

 

 5 His roads are firm at all times.

 He is haughty, and your judgments are far from him.

 As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them.

 

 6 He says in his heart, “I will not be shaken.

 For generations I will have no trouble.”

 

 7 His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, and oppression.

 Under his tongue is trouble and wickedness.

 

 8 He lies in ambush near the villages.

 In the secret places he murders the innocent person.

 His eyes lie in wait for the helpless.

 

 9 He lies in wait in the secret place like a lion in its thicket.

 He lies in wait to seize the afflicted person.

 He seizes the afflicted person by drawing him into his net.

 

 10 So the crushed one sinks down,

 and the unfortunate ones fall under his might.

 

 11 He says in his heart, “God has forgotten.

 He hides his face. He never saw it.”

 

 
12 
Arise, O Yahweh! O God, lift up your hand!

 Do not forget the afflicted.

 

 13 Why does the wicked person spurn God

 and say in his heart, “You will not hold me accountable”?

 

 14 On the contrary, you yourself see trouble and vexation.

 You look at it to take it into your hand.

 The afflicted person frees himself because of you.

 You become a helper of the orphan.

 

 15 Break the strength of the wicked person.

 And as for the evil person, you will call his wickedness to account

 until you find none.

 

 
16 
Yahweh is King forever and ever!

 The nations will perish from his land.

 

 17 O Yahweh, you have listened to the desire of the afflicted.

 You will prepare their heart.

 You will cause your ear to attentively listen

 

 18 in order to judge the orphan and the oppressed person

 so that the man of the earth will terrorize them no longer.
