Rise up, O LORD; O God, lift up your hand;
do not forget the oppressed.
Why do the wicked renounce God,
and say in their hearts, “You will not call us to account”?
But you do see! Indeed you note trouble and grief,
that you may take it into your hands;
the helpless commit themselves to you;
you have been the helper of the orphan.
Break the arm of the wicked and evildoers;
seek out their wickedness until you find none.
The LORD is king forever and ever;
the nations shall perish from his land.
O LORD, you will hear the desire of the meek;
you will strengthen their heart, you will incline your ear
to do justice for the orphan and the oppressed,
so that those from earth may strike terror no more.
(Psalm 10:12-18, NRSV)
Do not forget the oppressed!
People think they can do what they want, whihc is true to a point. But if we ar enot looking out for our fellow man, then we do not get the law of Love that God gave us to live by.
God hears the desires of the meek and does not forget the oppressed. He will vindicate the downtrodden and bring up the lowly.
He will do justice for the ophan and the oppressed!
