Lord, surely you see these ·cruel [troublesome] and ·evil [grievous] things; look at them and ·do something [L put it in your hands]. ·People in trouble [L The helpless] ·look to you for help [entrust/abandon themselves to your hands]. You are the one who helps the orphans.
Lord, you see what they are doing. You have noted each evil act. You know what trouble and grief they have caused. Now punish them. O Lord, the poor man trusts himself to you; you are known as the helper of the helpless.
God, you see the problems of people in trouble. You take note of their pain. You do something about it. So those who are attacked place themselves in your care. You help children whose fathers have died.
But wait! You have seen, and You will consider the trouble and grief he caused. You will impose consequences for his actions. The helpless, the orphans, commit themselves to You, and You have been their Helper.
Thou seest, for thou beholdest travail and sorrow; that thou take them into thine hands. The poor man is left to thee; thou shalt be an helper to the fatherless and motherless. (But thou do see it, for thou beholdest all trouble, or all tribulation, and sorrow; and thou hast taken the matter into thy own hands. And the poor commit themselves to thee; and thou art a helper to the fatherless and the motherless.)
