Discussion for Psalms 109

  • A disciple
    Is there a difference between a lost sheep gone astray, and devoured by beasts of the wilderness; and one who willfully turns to be the Lord's enemy and a traitor? To Peter the Lord said, "..But I have prayed for thee; and WHEN thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren." But He gave no such words to Judas Iscariot. To the woman who came in and washed His feet with tears He said, Go in peace!

    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.
