The wicked believe that they will not be held accountable (Ps 10:12-10:13)

Rise up!

Yahweh!

O God!

Lift up your hand!

Do not forget the oppressed!

Why do the wicked renounce God?

They say in their heart.

‘You will not call us to account.’”

The psalmist wants Yahweh to rise up. He wanted Yahweh not to forget the oppressed. The wicked renounce God in their hearts because they think that Yahweh will not hold them accountable.
