... and the order of the world is shaken

I just finished praying the Office for daytime and the second Psalm was 382 and it is described as a "Denunciation of evil judges". It is that but it is also, and perhaps more relevantly for most of us, a warning not to judge or condemn others unfairly.

Anyway, it features this magnificent couplet:
Unperceiving, they grope in the darkness
and the order of the world is shaken.
Do you see that as the consequence of your judgments?
