CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
God is mighty and despiseth not any - He reproaches no man for his want of knowledge. If any man lack wisdom, he may come to God, who giveth liberally, and upbraideth not. I prefer this to the passive sense, will not be despised.
He is mighty - Literally, "He is mighty in strength of heart;" he can never be terrified nor alarmed.

The LORD hears the needy and does not despise his captive people.
He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea.
