A Psalm for Today … Ps. 94

Psalm 94:1 O יהוה, Ěl of vengeance; O Ěl of vengeance, shine forth!

I was reading this Psalm during my morning prayers. It is the Psalm the Rabbis recite on Wednesdays at the rostrum.

Psa 94:2 Raise Yourself up, O Judge of the earth; Render punishment to the proud.
Psa 94:3 יהוה, how long are the wrong, How long are the wrong going to exult?

With the heated debates on the political scene today, I pondered,”Man, that’s close!” Now look at the next verses.

Psa 94:4 They pour forth words, They speak arrogantly; All the workers of wickedness boast in themselves.
Psa 94:5 They crush Your people, O יהוה, And they afflict Your inheritance.
Psa 94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, And murder the fatherless.

OMG!!! Really!! This was written 2000 years ago and it perfectly describes the doings of Evil today! They crush Your people, O יהוה, … look what happened last Shabbat !!

Psa 94:7 Yet they say, “Yah does not see, And the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ pays no heed.”

Sound familiar? Let’s skip a few verses …

Psa 94:21 They band together against the life of the righteous, And declare innocent blood wrong.

But don’t despair … for we win.

Psa 94:23 And brings back on them their own wickedness, And cuts them off in their own wrongdoing; יהוה our Elohim does cut them off.

I know those who know me know where I stand. I am praying for righteousness to prevail next Tuesday. Our country, our World depends on it. But however it comes out, HaShem (God) is in control and if he deems we should have mercy, we will have mercy.
