Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 73:18-20

_ _ their end — future (Psalms 37:37, Psalms 37:38), which is dismal and terribly sudden (Proverbs 1:27; Proverbs 29:1), aggravated and hastened by terror. As one despises an unsubstantial dream, so God, waking up to judgment (Psalms 7:6; Psalms 44:23), despises their vain shadow of happiness (Psalms 39:6; Isaiah 29:7). They are thrown into ruins as a building falling to pieces (Psalms 74:3).
