The Divine Punishment is the third album by American avant-garde artist Diamanda Galás, released on June 30, 1986 by record label Mute.
The Divine Punishment is the first instalment of her "Masque of the Red Death" trilogy about the AIDS epidemic. In this instalment, she focuses on interpretations of Old Testament scripture.
AllMusic has retrospectively praised the album, describing it as "compelling but brutal. An ugly, brooding masterpiece."
