And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

11:18 destroy the earth. The first commandment given to men was to “have dominion over the earth” and to “subdue” the earth (Genesis 1:26-28), acting as God’s steward for the good of mankind and the glory of God, but instead men have all but destroyed the earth with wars and greed. This dominion mandate is still in effect, and God’s judgment awaits the earth-destroyers.
