Sanctions in the Psalms

In the psalms, God is repeatedly asked to destroy evil-doers. He is also asked to deliver His people. These are forms of sanctions. The destruction of evil men is a negative sanction, while the deliverance of believers is a positive sanction. The theme of positive and negative sanctions recurs  throughout the psalms.
