CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Which executeth judgment for the oppressed - This is the third reason why the lot of those is a happy one who trust in God. It is because he has power to pronounce and execute a right judgment or sentence in regard to the oppressed and the wronged, and because it is characteristic of his nature that he does thus execute judgment.

Which giveth food to the hungry - See the notes at Psalm 107:9 : "For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness." This is the fourth reason why they who confide in God are happy. Compare Luke 1:53 : "He hath filled the hungry with good things."

To hear the groaning of the prisoner, To set free those who were doomed to death,
The LORD performs righteous deeds And judgments for all who are oppressed.
For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.
"Bring my soul out of prison, So that I may give thanks to Your name; The righteous will surround me, For You will deal bountifully with me."
The eyes of all look to You, And You give them their food in due time.
