We have swallowed him up [bala`]. KJV-Interlinear
25 Let them
not say in their hearts, “Aha, our heart’s desire!” Let them not say, “We have
swallowed him up.” ESV
Reference to believers in general, and to Jesus Christ in particular.
Evil presumes triumph when there are no immediate repercussions. Evil celebrates when they seem to have defeated others or to have won by their efforts.
In their hearts, is a reference to the content of their soul. What they think is what they are, and evil is evil through and through when truth is rejected.
As to Christ, the mob and the powers that be, presumed that once he had been crucified, then that was it.
They had stopped any opposition toward themselves, by means of executing someone. They presume that death is the end and that no one can do anything after they have died.
And as far as Jesus is concerned, they could not have been more wrong.
As far as believers are concerned, then evil presumes that their death or defeat is the end. But, time goes on and there is far more after this life than in this life.
Evil presumes that this life is all there is and all that matters. But that too is wrong.
Anyone, any believer, who is defeated in life, in this life, has the next life, to be vindicated.
Life does not begin and end here. It goes on and on and God has charge of it all.
