An appeal for God to avenge
O Lord God, Nah. 1:2to whom vengeance belongeth;
O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
Ps. 7:6Lift up thyself, thou Gen. 18:25judge of the earth:
Render a reward to the proud.
Lord, Job 20:5how long shall the wicked,
How long shall the wicked triumph?
How long shall they Ps. 31:18;Jude 15utter and speak hard things?
And all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
They break in pieces thy people, O Lord,
And afflict thine heritage.
They slay the widow and the stranger,
And murder the fatherless.
Ps. 10:11Yet they say, The Lord shall not see,
Neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
Ps. 73:22;& 92:6Understand, ye brutish among the people:
And ye fools, when will ye be wise?
Ex. 4:11He that planted the ear, shall he not hear?
He that formed the eye, shall he not see?
He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct?
He that Job 35:11;Is. 28:26teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
1 Cor. 3:20The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man,
That they are vanity.
Job 5:17;Heb. 12:5Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord,
And teachest him out of thy law;
That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity,
Until the pit be digged for the wicked.
1 Sam. 12:22;Rom. 11:1For the Lord will not cast off his people,
Neither will he forsake his inheritance.
But judgment shall return unto righteousness:
And all the upright in heart shall follow it.
Who will rise up for me against the evildoers?
Or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
Ps. 124:1,2Unless the Lord had been my help,
My soul had almost dwelt in silence.
When I said, Ps. 38:16My foot slippeth;
Thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.
In the multitude of my thoughts within me
Thy comforts delight my soul.
Shall Amos 6:3the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee,
Which Is. 10:1frameth mischief by a law?
Mat. 27:1They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous,
And Prov. 17:15condemn the innocent blood.
But the Lord is Ps. 59:9my defence;
And my God is the rock of my refuge.
And Ps. 7:16;Prov. 2:22he shall bring upon them their own iniquity,
And shall cut them off in their own wickedness;
Yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.
