Psalm 10:17-18 ” You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted; You encourage them, and You listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, in order that man who is of earth, may terrify no more.”

Elsewhere in the Psalms it tells us that God doesn’t ignore the cry of the afflicted or oppressed…He pays attention and listens. But God does more than just listen…He defends the weak, for the battle is His. When the unjust and cruel exercise power over the oppressed… crushing them by the abuse of their authority, God sees and will act. For mere mortal man is no match to God’s sovereign power.
