Wesley's Notes for Psalms 9:12


9:12 Blood - The bloodshed of his innocent and holy ones: which though he may not seem to regard for a season, yet he will certainly call the authors of it to a severe account. Them - The humble, as it follows, or the oppressed, ver.#9|, that trust in him, and seek to him, ver.#10|, whom he seemed to have forgotten.
