10:1 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? [why] hidest thou [thyself] in a times of trouble?

    (a) As soon as we enter into affliction, we think God should help us, but that is not always his due time.
10:3 For the wicked b boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, [whom] the LORD abhorreth.
    (b) The wicked man rejoices in his own lust he boasts when he has that he would; he brags of his wit and wealth and blesses himself and thus blasphemes the Lord.
10:6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for [I shall] c never [be] in adversity.
    (c) The evil will not touch me, (Isa 28:15) or else he speaks thus because he never felt evil.
10:8 d He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
    (d) He shows that the wicked have many ways to hide their cruelty and therefore should be even more feared.
10:10 He croucheth, [and] humbleth himself, that the e poor may fall by his strong ones.
    (e) By the hypocrisy of them who have authority the poor are devoured.
10:12 f Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
    (f) He calls to God for help, because wickedness is so far overgrown that God must help now or never.

10:13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not g require [it].

    (g) Therefore you must punish their blasphemy.
10:14 Thou hast seen [it]; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to h requite [it] with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
    (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.
    (l) God helps when man's help ceases.
