Psalms 94

Verses 1-23

Psalm 94-100

Psalms 94:0

Prayer for the Execution of the Vengeance of God

1. The Prayer on account of the enemy (Psalms 94:1-7 )

2. Expostulation with the wicked (Psalms 94:8-13 )

3. The comfort of the righteous (Psalms 94:14-23 )

The seven Psalms which follow lead on to the full establishment of the kingdom on earth and most of these Psalms celebrate His judgment reign, and the blessings of the age to come. We start once more with a Psalm which pictures vividly the trials of the days which precede the coming of the Lord and the coming of His kingdom. The Spirit of God has arranged these Psalms, as we have by this time learned, in such a manner as to lead from suffering to glory, the path which He went and which His people are appointed to follow also. Hence we see in this Psalm the wicked persecuting and breaking in pieces the people of God, and the righteous remnant is calling to the God to whom vengeance belongeth to show Himself, that is, to manifest His glory in their behalf. The voice of faith we hear also, the assurance that the Lord will not forsake His people nor His inheritance, that the Lord will intervene in behalf of His own and cut off the wicked.
