Joel 3:4-8

“What are you to me, O Tyre and Sidon, and all the regions of Philistia? Are you paying me back for something? If you are paying me back, I will return your payment on your own head swiftly and speedily. For you have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried my rich treasures into your temples.[b] You have sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks in order to remove them far from their own border.Behold, I will stir them up from the place to which you have sold them, and I will return your payment on your own head. I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, to a nation far away, for the Lord has spoken.”

One response to “Joel 3:4-8

  1. The Lord forgives our sins, and doesn’t remember them. But He remembers the transgressions of those who war against His people. When people are ugly and injure us, God knows and He can handle the punishment if He chooses. He doesn’t need me to get His revenge and He can makes His own plans. When I strike back at people and take revenge into my own hands, I am advancing my plans and not letting God handle things.
