Psalm 58

This psalm is a prayer that God would display His righteous judgement here on earth, so as to bring the injustice of men to an end and to let the righteous rejoice in the fall of their oppressors.  From our vantage point in the end of times, we know that the psalmist really had to be seeking messianic relief, the kind of relief Isaiah prophesied when he said, "righteousness shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea."  Man's unrighteous judgement  won't end until then.

And, indeed, there's no one like the true Messiah, our Lord Jesus Clhrist, to bring about such relief.  The fact is that  He really is going to do that.  When He returns to this earth,  He'll do it quickly and He'll do it thoroughly!

He Himself had to face unjust judgement at the Cross. But there was a wonderful purpose - He was oppressed so that we might be delivered! And now, because He completed that work, He IS our relief.  When man oppresses now  there is ultimate triumph, though now for a time there is pain.  With that in mind, our response now should be, "come quickly, Lord Jesus," and let righteousness reign in the earth!  Amen!  Let us all join that triumphant chorus of prayer!

I particulary like the way this Psalm ends by saying
'Then people will say, There really are rewards for doing what is right. There really is a God who judges the world." Isa 58:11 NCV
"Good people take care of their animals, but even the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel" Prov. 12:10
