Caper Like Calves

“Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the exaltation of God be in their throat, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, punishment on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with iron bands; to execute on them the judgment written; this is an honor for all His saints. Praise Jehovah!” (Psalm 149:5-9)

A few verses come to mind:

“Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is judged by you, are you unworthy of small judgments? Do you not know that we shall judge angels, not to speak of this life?” (1 Corinthians 6:2-3).

“For, behold, the day is coming, burning like a fire pot; and all the proud and every doer of wickedness shall be chaff. And the coming day will set them ablaze, says Jehovah of Hosts, which will not leave root or branches to them. But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall rise up, and healing will be on His wings. And you shall go out and frisk like calves of the stall. And you shall tread under the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day which I am preparing, says Jehovah of Hosts. Remember the Law of My servant Moses which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, the statutes and judgments. Behold, I am sending you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Jehovah” (Malachi 4:1-5).

“And the seventh from Adam, Enoch, also prophesied to these men, saying, Behold, the Lord came with myriads of His saints, to do judgment against all, and to rebuke all the ungodly of them concerning all their ungodly works which they ungodly did, and concerning all the hard things ungodly sinners spoke against Him” (Jude 1:14-15).

“Who is this who comes from Edom with dyed garments from Bozrah, this One adorned in His clothing, bending in His great power? It is I, speaking in righteousness, mighty to save! Why is Your clothing red, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress? I have trodden the winepress, I alone, and no man of the peoples was with Me. And I will tread them in My anger, and trample them in My fury; and their juice shall be spattered on My garments; and I will pollute all My clothes. For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come. And I looked, and no one was helping. And I wondered that no one was upholding. Then My own arm saved for Me, and My fury upheld Me. And I tread down peoples in My anger, and made them drunk in My fury. And I poured their juice to the earth. I will mention the mercies of Jehovah, the praises of Jehovah, according to all that Jehovah has benefited us, and the great good to the house of Israel, by which He benefited them according to His mercies, and according to the multitude of His loving-kindness” (Isaiah 63:1-7).

“And indeed every priest stands day by day ministering, and often offering the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But He, offering but one sacrifice for sins, sat down in perpetuity at the right hand of God, from then on expecting until His enemies are placed as a footstool of His feet. For by one offering He has perfected in perpetuity the ones being sanctified. … Therefore, brothers, having confidence for the entering of the Holy of Holies by the blood of Jesus, which He consecrated for us, a new and living way through the veil; that is, His flesh” (Hebrews 10:11-14, 19-20).
