CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
17:8 Astonied - At the depth and mysteriousness of God's judgments, which fall on innocent men, while the worst of men prosper. Yet - Notwithstanding all these sufferings of good men, and the astonishment which they cause, he shall the more zealously oppose those hypocrites, who make these strange providences of God an objection to religion.
When I heard this, I tore my cloak and my shirt, pulled hair from my head and beard, and sat down utterly shocked.
"The righteous will be happy to see the wicked destroyed, and the innocent will laugh in contempt.
