A Plea for Judgement of the Wicked
David prayed that God would punish, and even destroy, the wicked. While David had specific enemies in mind, New Testament believers should pray for God to judge evil in general while we pray for the salvation of every person.
With this in mind, read this Psalm with the prayer Jesus taught His disciples in mind. One line from the LORD’s prayer summarizes the contents of this Psalm. When we pray, “Thy Kingdom come,” we are praying what David prayed in this Psalm.
