Psalm 10: When the Wicked are Troubling God’s People

Reposted from Pr. Wolfmueller:

(18 verses, 1:56 to read)


What I am about to READ

  • This Psalm is a prayer for help when the wicked are troubling the Lord’s people


  • 1-2: prayer
  • 3-11: sermon describing the wicked
  • 12-18: a prayer of thanksgiving for the overthrow of the wicked
  • Of all of the wicked things the wicked man does, the worst is in 10:11, he says that “God has forgotten.”


  • A profound image of the wicked man is given to us here: a lion crouching in his den (10:9)

The inward thoughts of the wicked man are written down for us: 10:4, 6, 11, 13.

  • Compare 10:1 with 10:11. God’s hiddeness is the Christians’ sorrow, but the wicked man’s delight!


  • Consider 10:16, this is a promise for you!
