The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BiblePsalms 109:9
Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
sometimes is the case of good men, who leave widows and fatherless
children, whom the Lord shows mercy to; being the Father of the
fatherless, and the Judge of the widow, (Psalms 68:5) , but sometimes it is
threatened and comes as a judgment, when the Lord shows no mercy and
favour to them, (Exodus 22:24) (Isaiah 9:17) . And this is the case here, which
very probably was literally fulfilled in Judas, who might have a wife
and children; since it looks as if the other apostles had, and certain
it is that one of them had a wife, even Peter, in the times of Christ;
see (1 Corinthians 9:5) (Matthew 8:14) . And this was verified in the people of the Jews;
whom the Lord divorced from himself, and wrote a "loammi" upon them,
and left them as orphans and fatherless, (Hosea 1:9) . This will never be
the case of Christ's people, or the Christian church, (John 14:18) , though
it will be of the antichristian one, (Revelation 18:7,8) .
