The Wicked Are Their Own Worst Enemy

Psalm 9:14-17–I will rejoice in thy salvation. The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken. The Lord is known by the judgment which he executes: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.


The heathen and the wicked bring about their own ruin.  The wickedness they plan and commit is their own undoing. It brings about an earthly judgment and penalty but ultimately will result in an eternal penalty.  “Be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23).  “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).  The Lord will execute judgment in which the wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget God.  The wages of sin is death and hell.  However it is not God’s will that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
