committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the
(h) To judge between the right and the wrong.
10:15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil [man]: seek
out his wickedness [till] thou find i none.
(i) For you have utterly destroyed him.
10:16 The LORD [is] King for ever and ever: the k heathen are
perished out of his land.
(k) The hypocrites or such as live not after God's law,
will be destroyed.
10:18 l To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the
man of the earth may no more oppress.
