Yahweh protects the oppressed (Ps 9:9-9:10)

“Yahweh is a stronghold for the oppressed.

He is a stronghold in times of trouble.

Those who know your name put their trust in you.

Yahweh!

You have not forsaken those who seek you.”

Yahweh is the stronghold or fort for those who are being oppressed. This was especially true in times of trouble. Anyone who put their trust in Yahweh would not be forsaken. Yahweh rewarded those who trusted in him.
