Discussion for Psalms 109

    Clearly a prophecy of Judas. And the rest of his seed who make merchandise of Christ.

    Psalm 109 does pertain to praying for the punishment of the wicked and is completely Biblical, regardless of your relationship or feelings about/with that wicked person. Peter quotes both Psalm 69 and 109 in Acts 1:20. This prayer clearly places the matter in the hands of our Just and Holy God. When you pray "Thy Kingdom Come" this includes the destruction of the wicked.
  • Mark colvin
    I am not sure I understand, especially verse 8
  • Patricia for verse 8
    For those of you who are quick to assume that the above scripture should pertain to the current President, you should probably stop and ask yourself what would Jesus do? Would he curse him and send him to the bottomless pit or would he pray for him? What ever happened to "Pray for kings, and for all that are in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty? or for that matter the golden rule "Do to others as you would have them do to you. " What if the president was your son, your brother, your nephew, your grandson? would you be that quick to apply that scripture to him or would you pray for him and encourage others to do so? Before you cast stones or point the finger of judgement on the man just remember that while you 're pointing one finger at him there are three more pointing right back at you.
