Psalms 40:15

Psalms 40:15

Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame
Of their shameful wishes, words, and actions, as they were: their habitations in Jerusalem were desolate, and so was their house or temple there, and their whole land, and they themselves were stripped of everything, when Jerusalem was taken and destroyed; see ( Matthew 23:38 ) ( Acts 1:20 ) ;

that say unto me, Aha, aha;
words expressive of joy, ( Psalms 35:21 Psalms 35:25 ) , exulting at his miseries and sufferings on the cross, ( Matthew 27:39-44 ) ; so the Targum,

``we have rejoiced at his destruction, with joy at his affliction.''
