then I will visit their transgression with a rod,
and their guilt with plagues. Bible see other translations

“visit.” When God “visited” someone, He intervened in their life, and He could intervene for their blessing or to bring deserved consequences or punishment. God is a righteous God, and He holds people accountable for their actions. Here in Psalm 89:32, He will “visit” them with a rod because of their sin.

[For more on God “visiting,” see commentary on Exodus 20:5.]
