a meal for jackals

Psalm 63:8-11 (JDV)

Psalm 63:8 I follow close to you; your right hand holds on to me.
Psalm 63:9 But those who intend to destroy my throat will go into the depths of the ground.
Psalm 63:10 They will be given over to the power of the sword; they will become a meal for jackals.
Psalm 63:11 But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by him will brag, because the mouths of liars will be shut.

a meal for jackals

Religion has invented a place for the bad guys to go when they die. David does not mention that place. He says that his enemies will die and go into the depths of the ground, becoming a meal for jackals. He does not deny that there will be a judgment day for sinners who reject God. He just does not expect death to usher in that judgment day. Instead, the New Testament tells us that Christ will be the judge when he returns.

Lord, we trust you to judge a righteous judgment.
