What does Psalm 109:20 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 109:20

Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the Lord
Who were so many Satans, as the word used signifies; and Judas particularly is called a devil; and of the same malevolent and diabolical disposition were the Jews in general, ( John 6:70 ) ( 8:44 ) and what is before imprecated upon them is the just recompence of reward for their hatred to Christ and ill usage of him.

And of them that speak evil against my soul;
or "life" F6; in order to take it away, as did the false witnesses that rose up against him, and the Jews who charged him with sedition and blasphemy.
