    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 69:24

    Pour out thine indignation upon them - That is, Punish them for their sins; or, do justice to them.

    And let thy wrathful anger - literally, "the burning of thy wrath;" glow of anger; burning wrath. See Numbers 25:4; Numbers 32:14, 1 Samuel 28:18. This is undoubtedly a petition that God would visit them with the severity of his indignation; or, it expresses the belief of the psalmist that they "deserved" such tokens of his displeasure.

    Take hold of them - Seize upon them; overtake them when they expect to escape.
