Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 10:16


10:16 Is king - To whom it belongs to protect his subjects. Therefore his peoples case is never desperate, seeing he ever lives to help them. The heathen - The Canaanites; whom God, as king of the world, expelled, and gave their land to his people. By which great example he confirms his faith and hope for the future. His land - Out of Canaan, which God calls his land, because he gave it to them, and fixed his presence and dwelling in it.

    Verse 1~This verse shows that when we are surrounded by wickedness and see bad things happening we can think that God is far away from us. It is ok to express these feelings in prayer to Jehovah God.

    To me this reminds me that if we remain humble and holy in honorng him and making our requests known to him in prayer that he will do the same by honoring and hearing us when we do pray . As he speaks in his word 1 Peter 5:6-7 King James Version KJV 6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him for he careth for you.

    We see/experience the trouble caused by the wicked and,in our impatience,cry to God for justice,now.The wicked exist only in the mercy of God, as he withholds judgement,as with believers also.Known only to God is his plan for every person. "I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."Rom9:15 Having grace we ought to pray,thy will be done.
