"Why do You stand afar off, O LORD?
Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?” (Ps. 10:1)
If we say these words to one of our friends, he will not bear them!
But God accepts such words and David His servant dared to say, "O Lord, how?"
David goes on blaming God, "The wicked in his pride persecutes the poor;
and blesses the covetous, whom the Lord abhors.
God is not in all his thoughts”.
Then David says "Arise, O Lord! O God, lift up Your hand!
Do not forget the humble.”
Why do you hide, Lord, in times of trouble?
Arise, work, save your flock.
Why do you let them say there is no God!
or say; “There is no help for him in God"!
"LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble" (Ps. 10:17).
