The Lord has prepared everything for His purpose—
even the wicked for the day of disaster.
The Lord guards all those who love Him,
but He destroys all the wicked.
You have rebuked the nations:
You have destroyed the wicked;
You have erased their name forever and ever.
If I say to the wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ but you do not warn him—you don’t speak out to warn him about his wicked way in order to save his life—that wicked person will die for his iniquity. Yet I will hold you responsible for his blood.
For the Lord loves justice
and will not abandon His faithful ones.
They are kept safe forever,
but the children of the wicked will be destroyed.
But transgressors will all be eliminated;
the future of the wicked will be destroyed.
Look to the mountains—
the feet of one bringing good news
and proclaiming peace!
Celebrate your festivals, Judah;
fulfill your vows.
For the wicked one will never again
march through you;
he will be entirely wiped out.
You will trample the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day I am preparing,” says the Lord of Hosts.
He does not keep the wicked alive,
but He gives justice to the afflicted.
though the wicked sprout like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be eternally destroyed.
Then I will announce to them, ‘I never knew you! Depart from Me, you lawbreakers!’
But He will say, ‘I tell you, I don’t know you or where you’re from. Get away from Me, all you workers of unrighteousness!’
The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather from His kingdom everything that causes sin and those guilty of lawlessness.
1 Peter 3:12
because the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and His ears are open to their request.
But the face of the Lord is against
those who do what is evil.
2 Peter 2:9
then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment,
This is the wicked man’s lot from God,
the inheritance God ordained for him.
This is a wicked man’s lot from God,
the inheritance the ruthless receive from the Almighty.
For to the man who is pleasing in His sight, He gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy, but to the sinner He gives the task of gathering and accumulating in order to give to the one who is pleasing in God’s sight. This too is futile and a pursuit of the wind.
Therefore the wicked will not survive the judgment,
and sinners will not be in the community of the righteous.
