"Vengeance of the Lord" Video Devotions
"Vengeance of the Lord" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 137, verses 7 through 9. As we read through the last three verses of Psalm 137, the Psalmist is rather harsh with his words as he calls for the vengeance of the Lord upon the Babylonians. At least, it seems harsh to us in our day of forgiveness and leniency for the criminal. Yet, is the Psalmist out of line? Should he have a more forgiving spirit? In a true system of justice and equity, there is a proper balance between tolerance and payment for one's transgressions. However, in truth, no sin is truly forgotten. All sins require a just payment by the transgressor. When one considers the holiness, purity, and righteousness of God our Father, one realizes that no sin can truly go unpunished.
