Bible verse of the week

In the Gospel of Matthew chapter 5, an alternative for “an eye for an eye” is given by Jesus: ³⁸You have heard that it was said, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” ³⁹But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheekturn to him the other also.

Psalm-Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

What does it mean

Verse 9: The lord also will be a judge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

God’s style of justice is not just based on the power or authority he has, but on the fatherly love he has for us. This is why as a way of justifying the righteous, he protects them. He keeps them away from all their oppressors, preventing them from even coming close. He also ensures that they are kept safe when trouble comes knocking. He knows that their adversaries would definitely come after them and so he ensures that they are completely protected and secured.

The righteous with Christ will prevail Rejoice in his name Amen
