\\INTRODUCTION TO PSALM 10\\

This psalm in the Septuagint version, and those that follow it, is a
part and continuation of the preceding psalm, and makes but one with
it; hence in these versions the number of the following psalms differ
from others, and what is the eleventh with others is the tenth with
them, and so on to the hundred fourteenth and one hundred fifteenth,
which also are put into one; but in order to make up the whole number
of one hundred and fifty, the hundred sixteenth and the hundred
forty seventh are both divided into two; and indeed the subject of this
psalm is much the same with the former. Antichrist and antichristian
times are very manifestly described; the impiety, blasphemy, and
atheism of the man of sin; his pride, haughtiness, boasting of himself,
and presumption of security; his persecution of the poor, and murder of
innocents, are plainly pointed at; nor does the character of the man of
the earth agree to well to any as to him: his times are times of
trouble; but at the end of them the kingdom of Christ will appear in
great glory, when the Gentiles, the antichristian nations, will perish
out of his land, \\#Ps 10:1-11,16,18\\.
