Calvin at Ps. 26:1 on “Vindicate me, O Lord….”

“When God leaves us for a time to the injuries and petulance of our enemies, he seems to neglect our cause; but when he restrains them from assailing us at their pleasure he clearly demonstrates that the defense of our cause is the object of his care. Let us, therefore, learn from the example of David, when we are destitute of man’s aid, to have recourse to the judgment-seat of God, and to rely upon his protection.”  John Calvin, Commentary on the Psalms, comments on Ps. 26:1.
