Psalms 94:23

Psalms 94:23

And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity
The just punishment of it; or cause the mischief they designed to others to fall upon themselves; or make retaliation to them; that whereas they had drank the blood of the saints and martyrs of Jesus, blood should be given them to drink; or their own blood should be shed, ( Revelation 16:6 ) , the Jews F9 say, that the Levites stood on their desks, and recited this passage, both at the precise time of the destruction of the first temple by Nebuchadnezzar, and of the second by the Romans:

and shall cut them off in their own wickedness;
in the midst of it, while slaying the witnesses, and triumphing over them, ( Revelation 18:7 Revelation 18:8 ) , yea,

the Lord our God shall cut them off;
the God of Jacob, who, they said, did not see nor regard what they did, ( Psalms 94:7 ) ( Revelation 19:15-21 ) , and so this latter part of the psalm fulfils the former, and proves that God is a God of vengeance, to whom it belongs; and he will exercise it in due time.
