Yahweh hears my lament (Ps 9:19-9:20)

“Rise up!

Yahweh!

Do not let mortals prevail!

Let the nations be judged before you!

Put them in fear!

Yahweh!

Let the nations know that they are only human!

Selah”

Once again, David wanted Yahweh to get up, rise up, as if Yahweh was somehow sleeping on the job. He did not want the evil mortals to prevail. He wanted them to be judged before Yahweh. He wanted them to fear Yahweh. They should know that they are only human and not divine. At the end of this psalm we have another Selah, or musical interlude pause.
