Psalm 10:14 - O God, You are the helper of the fatherless

NIV But you, O God, do see trouble and grief;
you consider it to take it in hand.
The victim commits himself to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless.
KJV Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
NASB You have seen it, for You have beheld mischief and vexation to take it into Your hand
The unfortunate commits himself to You;
You have been the helper of the orphan.
Psalm 10:14


"You have seen" is the classic confession of trust in God in the psalms of lament. God does know; He does see; and He will act. God protects those like the fatherless who have no other protection (27:10).
