Yahweh should destroy the wicked (Ps 94:1-94:3)

“Yahweh!

You God of vengeance!

You God of vengeance!

Shine forth!

Rise up!

O judge of the earth!

Give to the proud what they deserve!

Yahweh!

How long shall the wicked survive?

How long shall the wicked exult?”

Psalm 94 has no title so that it seems like a call to have Yahweh take vengeance on the wicked ones. Yahweh is a God of vengeance. The psalmist wanted God to shine forth and rise up. He wanted Yahweh to judge the earth. He wanted the proud to get what they deserve. He wanted to know how long would the wicked survive and exult themselves.
