And my eye has looked exultantly upon my foes, My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.

And mine eye shall see its desire on mine enemies; mine ears shall hear it of the evil-doers that rise up against me.
World English Bible

And mine eye looketh on mine enemies, Of those rising up against me, The evil doers, do mine ears hear.
Psalm 92:11 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Mine eye also shall see my desire - That is, I shall be permitted to see the destruction of my foes; I shall be gratified with seeing them overthrown. On the sentiment here expressed, see Psalm 54:7, note; Psalm 59:10, note.
On mine enemies - The word used here - שׁור shûr - occurs nowhere else. It means, properly, a lier-in-wait; one who "watches;" one who is in ambush; and refers to persons who "watched" his conduct; who "watched" for his ruin.
And mine ears ... - literally, "Of those rising up against me, evil-doers, my ear shall hear." He would hear of their ruin; he would hear what he desired to hear.

The Lord was King ere time began, His reign is everlasting: When high the floods in tumult ran, Their foam to heaven up-casting, He made the raging waves His path; The sea is mighty in its wrath, But God on high is mightier. Thy testimonies, …
James Montgomery—Sacred Poems and Hymns
For He has delivered me from all trouble, And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies.
You will only look on with your eyes And see the recompense of the wicked.
When the wicked increase, transgression increases; But the righteous will see their fall.
