What does Proverbs 1:31 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 1:31

Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way
Their evil ways; be punished according to their deserts, and receive the just reward of their iniquities; see ( Isaiah 3:10 Isaiah 3:11 ) ; and be filled with their own devices;
or "counsels" F7: their device and counsel was to put Christ to death; to deliver him to the Roman governor, that he might be crucified, as he was: and they afterwards had their bellyful of crucifixion, as the word F8 used signifies; such vast numbers of them were crucified by the Romans before the walls of the city, five hundred a day, and sometimes more; insomuch that room was needed for crosses, and crosses for bodies F9.
