“But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold on thee.”
King James Version (KJV)
36:17 The judgment - Or, the sentence, thou hast justified the hard speeches which wicked men utter against God. Therefore - Therefore the just judgment of God takes hold on thee. Thou hast maintained their cause against God, and God passes against thee the sentence of condemnation due to wicked men.
