_ _ together — at once, all alike.

_ _ synagogues — literally, “assemblies,” for places of assembly, whether such as schools of the prophets (2 Kings 4:23), or “synagogues” in the usual sense, there is much doubt.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 74:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Destroy them — All at once. So they intended, although afterwards they changed their council, and carried some away captive. Burnt up — All the public places wherein the Jews used to meet together to worship God every sabbath — day.

They said in their (e) hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
