Sometimes the LORD’s ways are different than the ways we want it.
We would want all men to believe there is a God who will judge those on earth (Hence, the need for the Gospel).
There is a coming day which he shows Himself in such a manner that all will no longer deny it.
It is shown in a way that sinners might not necessarily like.
1Do you indeed speak righteousness, O [a]gods?
Do you (A)judge [b]uprightly, O sons of men?
2No, in heart you (B)work unrighteousness;
On earth you (C)weigh out the violence of your hands.
3The wicked are estranged (D)from the womb;
These who speak lies (E)go astray from birth.
4They have venom like the (F)venom of a serpent;
Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear,
5So that it (G)does not hear the voice of (H)charmers,
Or a skillful caster of spells.
6O God, (I)shatter their teeth in their mouth;
Break out the fangs of the young lions, O LORD.
7Let them (J)flow away like water that runs off;
When he (K)aims his arrows, let them be as headless shafts.
8Let them be as a snail which melts away as it goes along,
Like the (L)miscarriages of a woman which never see the sun.
9Before your (M)pots can feel the fire of thorns
He will (N)sweep them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike.
10The (O)righteous will rejoice when he (P)sees the vengeance;
He will (Q)wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11And men will say, “Surely there is a (R)reward for the righteous;
Surely there is a God who (S)judges on earth!”
