Psalm 10 contains a plea (presumably of David) to God concerning wicked oppressors. It is "an interesting blend of lament over the oppression of the wicked and triumphant jubilation at the prospect of divine judgment." (Ross)
The message of this Psalm is timeless and speaks to every generation. Our hearts also yearn and cry out for deliverance from evil and evil men who at times seem to wield their evil power and influence with no apparent consequences. The Psalm begins with the perplexity of the heart about these matters (Vs. 1) but after a lengthy description of the character of wicked oppressors (Vs. 2-11), moves to the position of faith and trust in God (Vs. 12-18).
