|I know that the LORD secures justice for the poor |
and upholds the cause of the needy.
|I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor. |
|I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted |
And justice for the poor.
|Psalm 140:12 |
CommentaryThis and the following three psalms are linked to the difficulties that David faced in his lifetime. This psalm deals with how David is coping with slander and this verse reveals how David copes with the anxiety that grips his soul: He knows that the Lord sees his trouble. He knows that the God he serves cares for the poor and needy. It is this knowledge that strengthens David to press on. It is God's faithfulness that helps David to see beyond the storm that is surrounding him.
