“So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth”.- Psalm 83:15-18

Comment:

The Bible says God is angry with the wicked everyday. (Psalm 7:11) This includes the author and head of wickedness, the devil. He will be destroyed in God's due time. Concerning the fate the devil will suffer it is written:  “In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.” (Isaiah 27:1)  Jesus Christ here referred to as the “great and strong sword” of the Lord has been empowered by God Almighty to destroy satan the devil and his hosts and put wickedness to an end. (Compare Jeremiah 51:20-23) St. Paul said “And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly” (Romans 16:20) This will take place at the battle of the great day of God Almighty, referred to by Bible scholars as the Battle of Armageddon. (Revelation 16:13-16; 20:1,2). In that battle all that answers to wickedness will be destroyed as it is written: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” - . Revelation 21:8

There shall be no escape for the wicked though they may seek death but death will flee from them so that they may live to reap the rewards of their iniquity.  - Amos 9:1; Revelations 6:15, 16; 9:6.
