Cryptic Scripture Corner

This is from Wisdom 12:27, in the King James translation. Yes, all the words are English, but am I the only English-speaker who reads this and is left completely confused?

For, look, for what things they grudged, when they were punished, that is, for them whom they thought to be gods; [now] being punished in them, when they saw it, they acknowledged him to be the true God, whom before they denied to know: and therefore came extreme damnation upon them.
