Psalm 94

94
The Lord Will Not Forsake His People
1O Lord, God of #Deut. 32:35, 41, 43; Isa. 35:4; Jer. 51:56; Nah. 1:2; Rom. 12:19 vengeance,
O God of vengeance, #See Ps. 50:2shine forth!
2 # See Ps. 7:6 Rise up, O #See Ps. 58:11 judge of the earth;
repay to the #Luke 1:51proud what they deserve!
3O Lord, #Rev. 6:10; See Ps. 74:10 how long shall the wicked,
how long shall #[Job 20:5]the wicked exult?
4They pour out their #Ps. 31:18; 1 Sam. 2:3; [Jude 15] arrogant words;
all #Ps. 92:7, 9; 125:5the evildoers boast.
5They #[Prov. 22:22; Isa. 3:15]crush your people, O Lord,
and afflict your heritage.
6They kill #[Isa. 10:2]the widow and the sojourner,
and murder #[Isa. 10:2]the fatherless;
7 # See Job 22:13 and they say, “The Lord does not see;
the God of Jacob does not perceive.”
8 # See Ps. 49:10 Understand, O dullest of the people!
Fools, when will you be wise?
9 # [Ex. 4:11; Prov. 20:12] He who planted the ear, does he not hear?
He who formed the eye, does he not see?
10He who #[Job 12:23] disciplines the nations, does he not rebuke?
He who #See Job 35:11teaches man knowledge—
11 # Cited 1 Cor. 3:20 the Lord—knows the thoughts of man,
that they are #[Ps. 30:5, 11]but a breath.#94:11 Septuagint they are futile
12 # Prov. 3:11, 12; Heb. 12:5, 6; See Job 5:17 Blessed is the man whom you #Deut. 8:5; 1 Cor. 11:32discipline, O Lord,
and whom you teach out of your law,
13to give him #Job 34:29 rest from #Ps. 49:5 days of trouble,
until #Ps. 55:23a pit is dug for the wicked.
14 # 1 Sam. 12:22; Rom. 11:2 For the Lord will not forsake his #Deut. 32:9people;
he will not abandon his #Deut. 32:9heritage;
15for #[Isa. 42:3] justice will return to the righteous,
and all the upright in heart will #1 Sam. 12:14; 1 Kgs. 14:8follow it.
16 # See Ps. 12:5 Who rises up for me against the wicked?
Who stands up for me against evildoers?
17 # Ps. 124:1, 2 If the Lord had not been my help,
my soul would soon have lived in the land of #See Ps. 31:17silence.
18When I thought, #Ps. 38:16; [Ps. 73:2] “My foot slips,”
your steadfast love, O Lord, #[Ps. 20:2]held me up.
19When the cares of my heart are many,
your consolations cheer my soul.
20Can #[Amos 6:3] wicked rulers be allied with you,
those who frame#94:20 Or fashion injustice by #Ps. 50:16; 58:2; Isa. 10:1statute?
21They #Matt. 27:1 band together against the life of the righteous
and condemn #Matt. 27:4the innocent to death.#94:21 Hebrew condemn innocent blood
22But the Lord has become my #See Ps. 9:9 stronghold,
and my God #See Ps. 18:2 the rock of my #See Ps. 14:6refuge.
23He will bring back on them #See Ps. 7:16; 34:21; [Prov. 2:22] their iniquity
and #[Ps. 92:9]wipe them out for their wickedness;
the Lord our God will wipe them out.
