|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.
|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. |
|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).
