Psalm 37:20

Psalm 37:20 But the wicked will perish; Yahveh’s enemies, like the glory of the pastures, will disappear– they will disappear like smoke.

destined to disappear

A pasture looks beautiful and limitless, but it is eventually consumed by hungry beasts. Its glory is a sight to behold. But it is not permanent. The psalmist used this simile to remind his readers that God’s enemies are not immortal. They will not be kept in some corner of God’s universe forever. Their destiny is to disappear. But the saved will inherit the land. Their destiny is to be with the Lord forever.

Lord, thank you for the promise of permanent life.
