Yahweh hears the cry of the afflicted (Ps 9:11-9:12)

“Sing praises to Yahweh!

He dwells in Zion!

Declare his deeds among the peoples!

He who avenges blood,

He is mindful of them.

He does not forget

The cry of the afflicted.”

David wanted to sing praises to Yahweh, who lives at Mount Zion, where he has placed the Temple in Jerusalem. Everyone was to declare the deeds that he had done among his people. Yahweh avenged blood. He never forgets the afflicted ones. He is always mindful of them.
