Yahweh destroys the wicked (Ps 9:5-9:6)

“You have rebuked the nations.

You have destroyed the wicked.

You have blotted out their name forever and ever.

The enemies have vanished in everlasting ruins.

You hast rooted out their cities.

The very memory of them has perished.”

Yahweh has destroyed the wicked enemies of David. He has rebuked the pagan nations and blotted out their name forever. They have vanished into everlasting ruins. Their cities have been rooted out as their memory has perished. It was not good to be an enemy of David.
