Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Which ewecuteth judgment for the oppressed - For those who suffer by violence or calumny. This may refer to the Israelites, who suffered much by oppression from the Babylonians, and by calumny from the Samaritans, etc., who had prejudiced the king of Persia against them.

Giving food to the hungry - No doubt he fed the poor captives by many displays of his peculiar providence.

The Lord looseth the prisoners - And as he has sustained you so long under your captivity, so will he bring you out of it.
