What does Psalm 10:15 mean?

Still praying for God to punish the wicked, David asks God to break the arm of the wicked and evildoer. This is not simply a graphic or vengeful request: the "arm" represents a person's power. If his arm is broken, his power is greatly reduced. If God breaks the power of wicked persons, they cannot continue to afflict the helpless.

David prays further for God to expose and judge every evil deed committed by the wicked. He asks God to search the evil person's life, uncovering every sin, until nothing is left unpunished. This would overthrow the wicked man's false claim that God is unable or unwilling to deal with sin (Psalm 10:11). Jesus told His disciples: "For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light" (Luke 8:17). The wicked will not escape God's judgment.
