Pouring Your Heart Out to God

From Matthew Henry’s Commentary

The Septuagint translation [Greek OT translation] joins this psalm with the ninth, and makes them but one; but the Hebrew makes it a distinct psalm, and the scope and style are certainly different. In this psalm,

I.  David complains of the wickedness of the wicked, describes the dreadful pitch of impiety at which they had arrived (to the great dishonor of God and the prejudice of his church and people), and notices the delay of God’s appearing against them (v. 1–11).

ll. He prays to God to appear against them for the relief of his people and comforts himself with hopes that he would do so in due time (v. 12–18).[1]
