    Psalms 94:1
    KJV 1 O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
    Thomson 1 A Psalm by David for the fourth day of the week. The Lord is a God of vengeance, the God of vengeance hath given solemn warning.


    These are my thoughts.
    Vengeance is for the Lord to take and we need to let Him have it from us because for us to take it would be sin.

    You quote David who was known for killing his ten thousands so was is it you think sin is in this case? Are you saying men shouldn't execute God's Judgments in the earth?

    Psalms 94:2


    KJV 2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.


    Thomson 2 Exalt thyself, O thou judge of the earth; render a retribution to the proud.


    These are my thoughts.

    The Lord is going to exalt Himself and we are to exalt Him, He will judge the earth in His time.

    Thomson 3 How long shall sinners, O Lord; how long shall sinners boast?

    These are my thoughts.

    God will see to it that the wicked’s triumph ends.

    that is really a distorted view, Jesus walked in the mist of His enemies to bring Salvation to the faithful, His enemies will never have peace, or peace with God. His enemies having peace, or peace with God was and never is promised. salvation to the believer is promised, which includes Peace with God through His Son.


    the Light was separated from the darkness, hence the darkness that was there never responded to the Light.

    nice, i was wondering if anyone would have any objections there. Imo you both make good points, obviously "the faithful" would not have deserted Him, etc. And i guess his enemies will have peace when they are seen in a different light, or when the light bulb goes on for them, when they confess Christ, right? So each perspective has some validity imo

    God loves the world, and we are told not to, which is kinda weird huh?
    We are told to love our enemies, which imo is the bridge there

    Psalms 94:4


    KJV 4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?




    Thomson 4 Shall they declaim and utter injustice? Shall all the workers of iniquity speak?




    These are my thoughts.

    The world is so full of arrogance, we are to humble servants filled with the love of our Lord.

    Psalms 94:5
    KJV 5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.

    Thomson 5 They have oppressed thy people, O Lord: and afflicted thine inheritance.

    These are my thoughts.

    Those who don’t follow God often hurt the people of us who do.

    Psalms 94:6
    KJV 6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
    Thomson 6 They have slain the widow and orphan: they have murdered the stranger,

    These are my thoughts.
    When people move away from the values of the Lord evil happens on big levels.

    Psalms 94:7


    KJV 7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.




    Thomson 7 and said, The Lord cannot see, nor can the God of Jacob discern.








    These are my thoughts.

    There isn’t anything the Lord cant see, we cant hide anything from Him.

    Psalms 94:8


    KJV 8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?




    Thomson 8 Consider I beseech you, ye brutish among the people. And ye fools, at length be wise.


    These are my thoughts.

    Rather then to think we are wise, we need to just keep trying to understand more and more.

    There is an event in Numbers 25 -- This event is called Ba'al of Pe'or. 25:3-9 / 3- So Israel was joined to Ba;al of Pe;or, and the anger of the Lord was aroused against Israel.
    4- Then the Lord said to Moses, Take all the leaders of the people and Hang the Offender's before the Lord, out in the Sun, that the fierce anger of the Lord may turn away from Israel.
    5- So Moses said to the Judges of Israel, Every one of you Kill his men who were Joined to Ba'al of Pe'or.
    6- And indeed, One of the children of Israel came and presented to his brethren a Midianite woman in the sight of all the Congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping at the door of the Tabernacle of meeting.
    7- Now when Phin'e-has the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the Priest, saw it, he arose from among the congregation and took a Javelin in his hand;
    8- And went after the man of Israel into the Tent and Thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her body, So the Plague was stopped among the children of Israel.
    9- And those that died in the Plague were Twenty-four thousand!!

    Did Phinehas Sin by killing these two people, God in verse 12 give's Phinehas the Covenant of Peace for his Action's!!
    No! Moses was not taking actin, to verse [5] God made judgement! Phinehas just completed the execution.
    Throughout the OT Men did to their Enemies as God gave them favor, God's Judgement was worked through the Men He Chose!

    Psalms 94:9
    KJV 9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
    Thomson 9 Doth not he, who hath planted the ear, hear? And doth not he who formed the eye, see?

    These are my thoughts.
    If we have ears and eyes then we need to use our sight and hearing to honor and seek the Lord.

    KJV 10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?



    Thomson 10 Will not he, who chastiseth nations, reprove? He who teacheth man knowledge?



    These are my thoughts.

    We should learn from the discipline we receive from the Lord.

    KJV 11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.



    NHEB 11 The LORD knows the thoughts of man, that they are futile.

    We often want to follow our own way which is vain, we are blessed to follow His ways.

    If we are His child, He both disciplines and teaches us.

    KJV 13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.



    Thomson 13 in order to set him at ease from evil days; until a pit be dug for the sinner.




    These are my thoughts.

    We need to seek Jesus for rest and give Him judgment and not judge ourselves.

    God wont reject us once we have come to Christ because by Christ we become His people and become coheirs with Jesus.

    KJV 15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.



    Thomson 15 till justice return to judgment; and all the upright in heart be in her train.



    These are my thoughts.

    God’s judgment makes things right and by following Christ we are right before we face judgment.
