What does Psalm 91:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 91:8

Only with thine eyes shall thou behold
The flying arrow, the walking pestilence, and wasting destruction, and the great devastations made by it:

and see the reward of the wicked;
the vengeance of God upon them, and this as a just punishment for their sins; not looking upon it with delight and pleasure, rejoicing in the misery of their fellow creatures, any otherwise than as the glory of divine justice is displayed in it; see ( Psalms 52:6 ) ( 68:10 ) , the pestilence is always threatened, and it always comes, as a Judgment upon a wicked generation of men; and so it is ever to be considered, and is considered by good men, ( Leviticus 26:5 ) ( Deuteronomy 28:20 Deuteronomy 28:21 ) .
