from the Lord—as His judicial act.109:6-20 The Lord Jesus may speak here as a Judge, denouncing sentence on some of his enemies, to warn others.

How it will affect the senses of the body, and the powers of the soul, with pain, anguish, horror, and despair! Think on these things, sinners, tremble and repent.
