10 1 He complaineth of the fraud, rapine, tyranny, and all kinds of wrong, which worldly men use, assigning the cause thereof, that wicked men, being as it were drunken with worldly prosperity, and therefore setting apart all fear and reverence towards God, think they may do all things without controlling. 15 Therefore he calleth upon God to send some remedy against these desperate evils, 16 and at length comforteth himself with hope of deliverance.
1 Why standest thou far off, O Lord, and hidest thee in [a]due time, even in affliction?
2 The wicked with pride doth persecute the poor; let them be taken in the crafts that they have imagined.
Psalm 10:1So soon as we enter into affliction, we think God should help us, but that is not always his due time.
