For they wither quickly like grass
and wilt like tender green plants.
A little while, and the wicked person will be no more;
though you look for him, he will not be there.
God, You will bring them down
to the Pit of destruction;
men of bloodshed and treachery
will not live out half their days.
But I will trust in You.
For there is a cup in the Lord’s hand,
full of wine blended with spices, and He pours from it.
All the wicked of the earth will drink,
draining it to the dregs.
though the wicked sprout like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be eternally destroyed.
The wicked man will see it and be angry;
he will gnash his teeth in despair.
The desire of the wicked man will come to nothing.
God, if only You would kill the wicked—
you bloodthirsty men, stay away from me—
A wicked man’s iniquities entrap him;
he is entangled in the ropes of his own sin.
2 Peter 2:17
These people are springs without water, mists driven by a whirlwind. The gloom of darkness has been reserved for them.
wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shameful deeds; wandering stars for whom the blackness of darkness is reserved forever!
This is a wicked man’s lot from God,
the inheritance the ruthless receive from the Almighty.
This is the wicked man’s lot from God,
the inheritance God ordained for him.
