“He says in his heart, ‘God has forgotten, he has hidden his face, he will never see it’” (v11). The psalmist says that bullies – those who use their power against the weak –(v2-6) either believe God does not exist or that He isn’t paying attention (and therefore, they won’t get caught). The cruel person “sits in ambush in the villages; in hiding places he murders the innocent. His eyes stealthily watch for the helpless” (v8).
But “You do see … you have been the helper of the fatherless” (v14). God will one day judge all humanity; today, in His name, we can see and care for “the fatherless and the oppressed” (v18).
