Devotional Readings, M'Cheyne Bible Reading Notes

Psalm 58 – This Sunday’s sermon

Ok, I just put that in the title…it’s not going to actually happen.

Here is the text.

Perhaps as we read this we might think about this verse… and God’s answer.

Revelation 6:10  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

Revelation 6:11  And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

God Who Judges the Earth

Psa 58:1  To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David. Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?

Psa 58:2  Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

Psa 58:3  The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

Psa 58:4  Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

Psa 58:5  Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

Psa 58:6  Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.

Psa 58:7  Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.

Psa 58:8  As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.

Psa 58:9  Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.

Psa 58:10  The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

Psa 58:11  So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
