What does Psalm 37:32 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 37:32

The wicked watcheth the righteous
All his motions and steps, his works and actions; he watches for his halting, and to take all opportunities and advantages against him; see ( Jeremiah 20:10 ) ;

and seeketh to slay him;
murder his reputation, destroy his substance, and take away his life: some understand it of the devil, who watches the saints, observes their failings, accuses then, before the throne, and seeks to devour them, ( 1 Peter 5:8 ) .
