Thinking & Understanding
Today’s passage plainly shows that God’s judgement could not be fiercer. When God held the wicked accountable for their sins, they would not be able to avoid death. Once God’s judgement had passed, the whole earth, from nation to nation, would be covered in dead bodies (vv. 30-33). The corrupt leaders would receive even more serious judgement, because their corruption and sins would not end with them, but extend into their communities (vv. 34-37). God would judge them as fiercely as a youthful lion on the hunt (v. 38).

Who is God?
Vv. 30-31 God is a fearsome god who judges sin. God’s judgement will pounce like a fierce lion. God will judge all those who are wicked, but leaders will be judged even more harshly. Do we know how fearsome God’s wrath and judgement are? Are we keeping away from sin through fear of God?

What lesson is God teaching me?
Vv. 32-33 God’s judgement will pass through the earth and devour everything in its path like a fierce lion. Only disaster will remain. God’s judgement will be devastating beyond any hope of reconstruction. The people will be judged so harshly because they abandoned God and filled their unholy desires by serving man-made idols. If we truly believe that this judgement will come, we will have a better understanding of what commands we must teach our children to keep.

Prayer
Lord, our judge, help us to remember your righteousness and keep away from sin.
