Have you ever been falsely accused or so badly hurt that you wanted to take revenge? In this life, we may face many injustices: we may be misunderstood; we may not be appreciated by others; our work and service may not be duly rewarded; we may be overlooked and ignored.
Justice is a major theme in the book of Psalms. Justice is more than honesty. It is active intervention on behalf of the helpless, especially the poor. The psalmists praise God because He is just. They plead for Him to intervene and bring justice where there is oppression and wickedness. They condemn the wicked who trust in their wealth and extol the righteous who are just towards their neighbors. The psalmists do not merely wish the poor could be given what they need, but plead with God to destroy those nations that are subverting justice and oppressing God’s people.
