Behold, it is written before me
This account of their sins; it was in his sight and constant remembrance, and punishment for them was determined by him, written in the book of his decrees: I will not keep silence;
but threaten with destruction, and not only threaten, but execute; plead against them really, as well as verbally, with sore judgments: but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom;
full and just recompence of punishment for all their transgressions, as it follows. The Targum is,
``I will recompense to them the vengeance of their sins, and deliver their bodies to the second death.''
