Crush
He will judge among the nations. He will heap up dead bodies. He will crush the ruler of the whole earth.  Psalms 110:6

Crush

He will judge among the nations. He will heap up dead bodies. He will crush the ruler of the whole earth.  Psalms 110:6

I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.”  Genesis 3:15

You went out for the salvation of your people, for the salvation of your anointed. You crushed the head of the land of wickedness. You stripped them head to foot. Selah. Habakkuk 3:13

Will Judge

For Yahweh will judge his people, and have compassion on his servants. Psalms 135:14

I said in my heart, “God will judge the righteous and the wicked; for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.”  Ecclesiastes 3:17

The times of ignorance therefore God overlooked. But now he commands that all people everywhere should repent, because he has appointed a day in which he will judge the world in righteousness by the man whom he has ordained; of which he has given assurance to all men, in that he has raised him from the dead.”  Acts 17:30,31

Rejoice, young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth, and walk in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes; but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment. Ecclesiastes 11:9

This is the end of the matter. All has been heard. Fear God, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every work into judgment, with every hidden thing, whether it is good, or whether it is evil.  Ecclesiastes 12:13,14

SING!

SING!

Sing to Yahweh a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand, and his holy arm, have worked salvation for him.   Yahweh has made known his salvation. He has openly shown his righteousness in the sight of the nations.  He has remembered his loving kindness and his faithfulness toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.  Make a joyful noise to Yahweh, all the earth! Burst out and sing for joy, yes, sing praises!  Sing praises to Yahweh with the harp, with the harp and the voice of melody.  With trumpets and sound of the ram’s horn, make a joyful noise before the King, Yahweh.  Let the sea roar with its fullness; the world, and those who dwell therein.  Let the rivers clap their hands. Let the mountains sing for joy together.  Let them sing before Yahweh, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.  Psalm 98

Sing to Yahweh a new song! Sing to Yahweh, all the earth.  Sing to Yahweh! Bless his name! Proclaim his salvation from day to day!  Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples.  For great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised! He is to be feared above all gods.  For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but Yahweh made the heavens.  Honor and majesty are before him. Strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.  Ascribe to Yahweh, you families of nations, ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength.  Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due to his name. Bring an offering, and come into his courts.  Worship Yahweh in holy array. Tremble before him, all the earth.  Say among the nations, “Yahweh reigns.” The world is also established. It can’t be moved. He will judge the peoples with equity.  Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice. Let the sea roar, and its fullness!  Let the field and all that is in it exult! Then all the trees of the woods shall sing for joy before Yahweh; for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, the peoples with his truth.  Psalm 96

Hannah prayed, and said: “My heart exults in Yahweh! My horn is exalted in Yahweh. My mouth is enlarged over my enemies, because I rejoice in your salvation.  There is no one as holy as Yahweh, For there is no one besides you, nor is there any rock like our God.  “Don’t keep talking so exceedingly proudly. Don’t let arrogance come out of your mouth, For Yahweh is a God of knowledge. By him actions are weighed.  I Samuel 2:1-3

And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.  Isaiah 16:5

Peter opened his mouth and said, “Truly I perceive that God doesn’t show favoritism; but in every nation he who fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him.  The word which he sent to the children of Israel, preaching good news of peace by Jesus Christ—he is Lord of all— you yourselves know what happened, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; even Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.  We are witnesses of everything he did both in the country of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they also killed, hanging him on a tree.  God raised him up the third day, and gave him to be revealed, not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen before by God, to us, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.  He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that this is he who is appointed by God as the Judge of the living and the dead.  All the prophets testify about him, that through his name everyone who believes in him will receive remission of sins.”  Acts 10:34-43

Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind; for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin; that you no longer should live the rest of your time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.  For we have spent enough of our past time doing the desire of the Gentiles, and having walked in lewdness, lusts, drunken binges, orgies, carousings, and abominable idolatries.  They think it is strange that you don’t run with them into the same excess of riot, blaspheming: who will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.  For to this end the Good News was preached even to the dead, that they might be judged indeed as men in the flesh, but live as to God in the spirit. I Peter 4:2-6

Jesus said, “I came into this world for judgment, that those who don’t see may see; and that those who see may become blind.”  Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said to him, “Are we also blind?” Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, ‘We see.’ Therefore your sin remains.  John 9:39-41

Jesus answered, “This voice hasn’t come for my sake, but for your sakes. Now is the judgment of this world. Now the prince of this world will be cast out.  And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” But he said this, signifying by what kind of death he should die.  John 12:30-33

I will no more speak much with you, for the prince of the world comes, and he has nothing in me.  John 14:30

Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I don’t go away, the Counselor won’t come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. When he has come, he will convict the world about sin, about righteousness, and about judgment; about sin, because they don’t believe in me; about righteousness, because I am going to my Father, and you won’t see me any more; about judgment, because the prince of this world has been judged.  John 16:7-11

“But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory.  Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.  He will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.  Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in.  I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to me.’  “Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give you a drink?  When did we see you as a stranger, and take you in; or naked, and clothe you?  When did we see you sick, or in prison, and come to you?’  “The King will answer them, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’  Then he will say also to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you didn’t give me food to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; I was a stranger, and you didn’t take me in; naked, and you didn’t clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’  “Then they will also answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didn’t help you?’ “Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you didn’t do it to one of the least of these, you didn’t do it to me.’  These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Matthew 25:31-46

Beloved, let’s love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves has been born of God, and knows God.  He who doesn’t love doesn’t know God, for God is love.  By this God’s love was revealed in us, that God has sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son as the atoning sacrifice for our sins.  Beloved, if God loved us in this way, we also ought to love one another.  No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love has been perfected in us.  By this we know that we remain in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.  We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as the Savior of the world.  Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him, and he in God.  We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.  In this love has been made perfect among us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he is, even so are we in this world.  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.  We love him, because he first loved us.  If a man says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who doesn’t love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?  This commandment we have from him, that he who loves God should also love his brother.  I John 4:7-21

I will give thanks to Yahweh with my whole heart. I will tell of all your marvelous works.  I will be glad and rejoice in you. I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.  When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish in your presence.  For you have maintained my just cause. You sit on the throne judging righteously.  You have rebuked the nations. You have destroyed the wicked. You have blotted out their name forever and ever.  The enemy is overtaken by endless ruin. The very memory of the cities which you have overthrown has perished.  But Yahweh reigns forever. He has prepared his throne for judgment.  He will judge the world in righteousness. He will administer judgment to the peoples in uprightness.  Yahweh will also be a high tower for the oppressed; a high tower in times of trouble.  Those who know your name will put their trust in you, for you, Yahweh, have not forsaken those who seek you.  Sing praises to Yahweh, who dwells in Zion, and declare among the people what he has done.  For he who avenges blood remembers them. He doesn’t forget the cry of the afflicted.  Have mercy on me, Yahweh. See my affliction by those who hate me, and lift me up from the gates of death; that I may show all of your praise. In the gates of the daughter of Zion, I will rejoice in your salvation.  The nations have sunk down in the pit that they made. In the net which they hid, their own foot is taken.  Yahweh has made himself known. He has executed judgment. The wicked is snared by the work of his own hands. Meditation. Selah.  The wicked shall be turned back to Sheol, even all the nations that forget God.  For the needy shall not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor perish forever.  Arise, Yahweh! Don’t let man prevail. Let the nations be judged in your sight. Put them in fear, Yahweh. Let the nations know that they are only men. Selah.  Psalms 9

The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands. The Lord is among them, from Sinai, into the sanctuary.  You have ascended on high. You have led away captives. You have received gifts among people, yes, among the rebellious also, that Yah God might dwell there.  Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burdens, even the God who is our salvation. Selah. God is to us a God of deliverance. To Yahweh, the Lord, belongs escape from death.  Psalms 68:17-20

So speak, and so do, as men who are to be judged by a law of freedom. For judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.  James 2:12,13

But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self. For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.  Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God. I Corinthians 4:3-5

For we must all be revealed before the judgment seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Knowing therefore the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are revealed to God; and I hope that we are revealed also in your consciences. 2 Corinthians 5:10,11

The Mighty One, God, Yahweh, speaks, and calls the earth from sunrise to sunset.  Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines out. Our God comes, and does not keep silent. A fire devours before him. It is very stormy around him. He calls to the heavens above, to the earth, that he may judge his people: “Gather my saints together to me, those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.”  The heavens shall declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge. Selah. Psalm 50:1-6

But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.   For it is written, “‘As I live,’ says the Lord, ‘to me every knee will bow. Every tongue will confess to God.’”  So then each one of us will give account of himself to God.  Romans 14:10-12

Yahweh’s word came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and tell them, ‘When I bring the sword on a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them, and set him for their watchman; if, when he sees the sword come on the land, he blows the trumpet, and warns the people; then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet, and doesn’t heed the warning, if the sword comes, and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head.  He heard the sound of the trumpet, and didn’t take warning. His blood will be on him; whereas if he had heeded the warning, he would have delivered his soul.  But if the watchman sees the sword come, and doesn’t blow the trumpet, and the people aren’t warned, and the sword comes, and takes any person from among them; he is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’  “So you, son of man: I have set you a watchman to the house of Israel. Therefore hear the word from my mouth, and give them warnings from me. When I tell the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you will surely die,’ and you don’t speak to warn the wicked from his way; that wicked man will die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood at your hand. Nevertheless, if you warn the wicked of his way to turn from it, and he doesn’t turn from his way; he will die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your soul.  “You, son of man, tell the house of Israel: ‘You say this, “Our transgressions and our sins are on us, and we pine away in them. How then can we live?”’  Tell them, ‘“As I live,” says the Lord Yahweh, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why will you die, house of Israel?”’ “You, son of man, tell the children of your people, ‘The righteousness of the righteous will not deliver him in the day of his disobedience. And as for the wickedness of the wicked, he will not fall thereby in the day that he turns from his wickedness; neither will he who is righteous be able to live by it in the day that he sins. When I tell the righteous that he will surely live; if he trusts in his righteousness, and commits iniquity, none of his righteous deeds will be remembered; but he will die in his iniquity that he has committed.  Again, when I say to the wicked, “You will surely die;” if he turns from his sin, and does that which is lawful and right; if the wicked restore the pledge, give again that which he had taken by robbery, walk in the statutes of life, committing no iniquity; he will surely live. He will not die.  None of his sins that he has committed will be remembered against him. He has done that which is lawful and right. He will surely live. “‘Yet the children of your people say, “The way of the Lord is not fair;” but as for them, their way is not fair.  When the righteous turns from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, he will even die therein.  When the wicked turns from his wickedness, and does that which is lawful and right, he will live thereby.  Yet you say, “The way of the Lord is not fair.” House of Israel, I will judge every one of you after his ways.’”  Ezekiel 33:1-20

I saw a great white throne, and him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. There was found no place for them.   I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works.  The sea gave up the dead who were in it. Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them. They were judged, each one according to his works.  Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.  If anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.  Revelation 20:11-15

I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith. From now on, there is stored up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day; and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved his appearing.  2 Timothy 4:7,8

The men turned from there, and went toward Sodom, but Abraham stood yet before Yahweh.  Abraham came near, and said, “Will you consume the righteous with the wicked?  What if there are fifty righteous within the city? Will you consume and not spare the place for the fifty righteous who are in it?  May it be it far from you to do things like that, to kill the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be like the wicked. May that be far from you. Shouldn’t the Judge of all the earth do right?” Genesis 18:22-25

Arise, Yahweh, in your anger. Lift up yourself against the rage of my adversaries. Awake for me. You have commanded judgment.  Let the congregation of the peoples surround you. Rule over them on high. Yahweh administers judgment to the peoples. Judge me, Yahweh, according to my righteousness, and to my integrity that is in me. Yahweh administers judgment to the peoples. Judge me, Yahweh, according to my righteousness, and to my integrity that is in me.  Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous; their minds and hearts are searched by the righteous God.  My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart.  God is a righteous judge, yes, a God who has indignation every day.  If a man doesn’t repent, he will sharpen his sword; he has bent and strung his bow.  He has also prepared for himself the instruments of death. He makes ready his flaming arrows.  Behold, he travails with iniquity. Yes, he has conceived mischief, and brought out falsehood.  He has dug a hole, and has fallen into the pit which he made.  The trouble he causes shall return to his own head. His violence shall come down on the crown of his own head.  I will give thanks to Yahweh according to his righteousness, and will sing praise to the name of Yahweh Most High.  Psalm 7:6-17

Therefore you are without excuse, O man, whoever you are who judge. For in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself. For you who judge practice the same things.  We know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.  Do you think this, O man who judges those who practice such things, and do the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?  Or do you despise the riches of his goodness, forbearance, and patience, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?  But according to your hardness and unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath, revelation, and of the righteous judgment of God; who “will pay back to everyone according to their works:” to those who by perseverance in well-doing seek for glory, honor, and incorruptibility, eternal life; but to those who are self-seeking, and don’t obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, will be wrath and indignation, oppression and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  But glory, honor, and peace go to every man who does good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For there is no partiality with God.  Romans 2:1-11

This is an obvious sign of the righteous judgment of God, to the end that you may be counted worthy of God’s Kingdom, for which you also suffer. Since it is a righteous thing with God to repay affliction to those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted with us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire,   punishing those who don’t know God, and to those who don’t obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus, who will pay the penalty: eternal destruction from the face of the Lord and from the glory of his might,   when he comes in that day to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired among all those who have believed, because our testimony to you was believed.  To this end we also pray always for you, that our God may count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire of goodness and work of faith, with power; that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.  2 Thessalonians 1:5-12

I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war.  Revelation 19:11

About these also Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with ten thousands of his holy ones, to execute judgment on all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their works of ungodliness which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”  These are murmurers and complainers, walking after their lusts (and their mouth speaks proud things), showing respect of persons to gain advantage.  Jude 1:14-16

He will keep the feet of his holy ones, but the wicked shall be put to silence in darkness; for no man shall prevail by strength.   Those who strive with Yahweh shall be broken to pieces. He will thunder against them in the sky. “Yahweh will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.”  I Samuel 2:9,10

Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ House of Israel, aren’t my ways fair? Aren’t your ways unfair?  “Therefore I will judge you, house of Israel, everyone according to his ways,” says the Lord Yahweh. “Return, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity will not be your ruin.  Cast away from you all your transgressions, in which you have transgressed; and make yourself a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die, house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him who dies,” says the Lord Yahweh. “Therefore turn yourselves, and live!  Ezekiel 18:29-32

If you falter in the time of trouble, your strength is small.   Rescue those who are being led away to death! Indeed, hold back those who are staggering to the slaughter!  If you say, “Behold, we didn’t know this;” doesn’t he who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, doesn’t he know it? Shall he not render to every man according to his work?  Proverbs 24:10-12

Yahweh is in his holy temple. Yahweh is on his throne in heaven. His eyes observe. His eyes examine the children of men.   Yahweh examines the righteous, but the wicked and him who loves violence his soul hates.   On the wicked he will rain blazing coals; fire, sulfur, and scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.  For Yahweh is righteous. He loves righteousness. The upright shall see his face.  Psalms 11:4-7
