CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
21:30 They - He speaks of the same person; only the singular number is changed into the plural, possibly to intimate, that altho' for the present only some wicked men were punished, yet then all of them should suffer. Brought - As malefactors are brought forth from prison to execution.

Let them see their destruction with their own eyes. Let them drink deeply of the anger of the Almighty.
But ask those who have been around, and they will tell you the truth.
