sn God is depicted here as a just ruler. In the ancient Near Eastern world a king was responsible for promoting justice, including caring for the weak and vulnerable, epitomized by the fatherless and widows.

tn Heb “God [is] in his holy dwelling place.” He occupies his throne and carries out his royal responsibilities.
