Thomas Boston, Works, 5:48:

Ps. 9:9, “God will be a refuge for the oppressed.” Are ye oppressed by sin? Do ye find it holding you down as a giant doth a weak man, so that your souls are saying, O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? Rom. 7:24. Are ye oppressed by Satan? Do ye find the strong and subtle adversary an overmatch for you? Are ye oppressed by the world? by the men of the world, in your goods, in your name and reputation; or on any other account are you crying out of violence and wrong? Are ye oppressed by the things of the world, the cares, business, or frowns of the world? Here is a refuge for you; come in hither unto a God in Christ, saying, O Lord, thou art my refuge; and, O Lord, I am oppressed, undertake for me, Isa. 38:14. And there is a promise for your safety, Ps. 72:4, “He shall break in pieces the oppressor.”
