This is a really powerful psalm on the honor of God among His people, Israel. It was one of the darker times for Israel when their enemies were seeking to wipe them off the face of the earth, making plans against them. Verses 1-5, the psalmist pleas to God of the injustice that they are facing at the hands of the enemies. Verses 6-8 actually identifies them. These were powerful and long-standing enemies of Israel that were seeking to destroy and defeat the Israelites. Verses 9-17 pleas to God about His intervention like God had done in the past. Most notably was the one during the time of Deborah, a prophetess and judge in Israel. She helped deliver Israel when Jabin and Sisera, Canaanite king and general respectively were oppressing and subjugating the Israelites. They were finally defeated and killed. And this same deliverance is what the psalmist asks for.
