How long O Lord before you kill these people
the things they say and do are so sinful.
Deep in the dark they lurk as if to cover
up their deep rooted hatred for one another.
They keep coming to hear the same things?
‘Why,” I ask, “when you wont obey these
words I utter from the Holy Scriptures?
Your father’s the devil and you’re his image!
What he does you do and you fulfill his desires,
all of you will be burned up in the Lake of Fire!”
Lord, should I pray for them to repent or be killed?
I can’t tell which one of them is your perfect will.
They shut their ears to the truth but love darkness.
Is this evidence that You have made them hardened,
harder than stone with eyes and ears shut tightly,
hardened to the Way the Truth and the Life?-
“But the Lord God helps Me;
therefore I have not been
therefore I have set My face
like a flint,
and I know I shall not be put to shame.
He who vindicates Me is near.
Who will contend with Me?
Let us stand up together.
Who is My adversary?
Let him come near to Me.
Behold, the Lord God helps Me;
who will declare Me guilty?
Behold, all of them will wear out like a garment;
the moth will eat them up.”
Following the Servant in this desert Highway
means that many climb up some other way than the right way.
Many claim a vision, revelation, or prophecy
but bear fruit that couldn’t be called such properly,
rambling on, interrupting, interjecting,
but Your word has been my bread most heavenly.
My mouth is satisfied with it and filled with sweetness,
but my belly is bitter as I digest and eat this.
If I open my mouth they will be judged worse,
but if I close my mouth I ‘ll heat up like a furnace.
No pearls of mine are going to these filthy swine anymore!
I can’t stand to see Your holy things be dog chow anymore!
I’ll turn my attention to those who will listen
to the voice of the Son of God who is Wisdom.
“Who among you fears the Lord
and obeys the voice of His Servant?
Let him who walks in darkness and has no light
trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God.
Behold, all you who kindle a fire,
who equip yourselves with burning torches!
Walk by the light of your fire, and by the torches
that you have kindled! This you shall have from My hand:
you shall lie down in torment.”
