Psalm 129 -The LORD Is Righteous

Read Psalm 129

We, as Christians, often shy away from these imprecatory psalms that pray for the LORD's justice to fall upon oppressors. Yet, in divine ordering, as Psalm 129 follows a psalm about the LORD bringing his blessing upon those who fear him, it bring the message of God's justice upon those who do not. This is the promise the LORD made to Abraham in Genesis 12:3, and praying for the LORD to curse those who would curse and hate Zion, is asking the LORD to be righteous - who he is.
