Psalm 94

1 Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.

2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.

3 Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?

4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

5 They break in pieces thy people, O Lord, and afflict thine heritage.

6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.

7 Yet they say, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?

9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?

10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law;

13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

14 For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

17 Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.

18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.

19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.

22 But the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.

  1. Psalm 122

    1 I rejoiced when they said unto me: ‘Let us go unto the house of the LORD.’
    2 Our feet are standing within thy gates, O Jerusalem;
    3 Jerusalem, that art builded as a city that is compact together;
    4 Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the LORD, as a testimony unto Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
    5 For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
    6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper that love thee.
    7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
    8 For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say: ‘Peace be within thee.’
    9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.

  2. That is a great image. However, the snake should be redrawn without a rattle. There are no rattlers in Israel, from what I can tell. But there are some vipers there that get up to four feet long, have lethal venom, and are extremely territorial. That would be a good symbol.

  3. The snake should be a little smaller, better centered, have no rattle, have the markings of the vipera palaestina and there should be a star of david on either side centered in the right and left third of the flag. The foliage should be green olive branches, the national tree of Israel, and a symbol of peace: You pick, the teeth? Or the olives? This would be much like the American national seal with the eagle clutching an olive branch in the right claw, and arrows in the left — the right is preferred, but the left is an option.
