What does Psalm 58:10 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 58:10

The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance
Before imprecated and foretold; the punishment inflicted by the Lord, to whom vengeance belongs, in a way of vindictive wrath; for what befalls the wicked in an afflictive way is in wrath, and as a vengeance upon them: and as the judgments of God are sometimes manifest, are to be seen, they are observed by the righteous, who rejoice at them; not as evils and miseries simply considered, nor from a private affection; but as the glory of divine justice is displayed therein, and the goodness of God is shown to them, by delivering them out of their hands; see ( Revelation 18:20 ) ( 19:1-3 ) ;

he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked;
which denotes the great destruction of the wicked, and the abundance of blood that shall be shed; see ( Revelation 14:20 ) ; and the entire victory the saints shall have over them, and their security from them, ( Psalms 68:21-23 ) ; as well as the satisfaction, and pleasure and refreshment, as it were, they shall have in their destruction; signified by their feet being washed in their blood, instead of being washed in water, usual in the eastern countries; because of the glory of the divine perfections appearing therein. The Septuagint, Vulgate Latin, and all the Oriental versions, read, "his hands".
