CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
I beheld the transgressors - Those who wronged me; those who violated the law of God.
And was grieved - Or, "sickened." The word used here means commonly to loathe, to nauseate, to sicken. Ezekiel 16:47; Psalm 95:10. I was made sad, sorry, sick at heart.

My eyes shed streams of water, Because they do not keep Your law. Tsadhe.
Do I not hate those who hate You, O LORD? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
A harsh vision has been shown to me; The treacherous one still deals treacherously, and the destroyer still destroys. Go up, Elam, lay siege, Media; I have made an end of all the groaning she has caused.
From the ends of the earth we hear songs, "Glory to the Righteous One," But I say, "Woe to me! Woe to me! Alas for me! The treacherous deal treacherously, And the treacherous deal very treacherously."
