     vengeance belongeth, {b} shew thyself.

         punish the wicked.

Ps 94:3
94:3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked

         esteem themselves above all others.

Ps 94:5
94:5 They {d} break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict
     thine heritage.

     (d) Seeing the Church was then so sore oppressed, it ought

         therefore we must call to God, to take our cause in

Ps 94:7

         not fear God, but gave themselves wholly to do

Ps 94:9
94:9 He that {f} planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that
     formed the eye, shall he not see?

         see, and understand their wickedness.

Ps 94:10
94:10 He that chastiseth the {g} heathen, shall not he correct?
      he that teacheth man knowledge, [shall not he know]?

      (g) If God punishes whole nations for their sins, it is
          mere folly for any one man or else a few to think that
          God will spare them.

Ps 94:12
94:12 Blessed [is] the man whom thou {h} chastenest, O LORD, and
      teachest him out of thy law;

      (h) God has care over his, and chastised them for their
          own good, that they should not perish for ever with
          the wicked.

Ps 94:15
94:15 But {i} judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all
      the upright in heart shall follow it.

      (i) God will restore the state and government of things to
          their right use, and then the godly will follow him

Ps 94:17
94:17 Unless the LORD [had been] my {k} help, my soul had almost
      dwelt in silence.

          the enemies, yet was assured that God's help would not

Ps 94:18

Ps 94:20
94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have {n} fellowship with
      thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

      (n) Though the wicked judges pretend justice in oppressing
          the Church, yet they do not have the authority of God.

Ps 94:23
94:23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall
      {o} cut them off in their own wickedness; [yea], the LORD
      our God shall cut them off.

      (o) It is a great token of God's judgment when the purpose
          of the wicked is broken, but most, when they are
          destroyed in their own malice.
