”cut off mine enemies

The original Hebrew word for ‘cut off‘ can be translated ‘disappear’. Thus, the text could be paraphrased “make my enemies disappear”, and actually that is what it is all about. The evil spirits are eternal beings, so they cannot be totally destroyed. In the end they will be thrown into the lake of fire, but even there they will not cease to exist. They will be tormented there for ever.

Rev. 20:10
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Jesus will see to it that the evil spirits are eventually sent into the lake of fire. But, before that there will be a period of time where the evil spirits temporarily disappear.

There is a kind of prison for evil spirits, and the bible calls it the bottomless pit. Even Satan will be sent there, during the Millennium.

Rev. 20:1-3
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

At the end of the thousand years, the prison will be opened, and the evil spirits will be let loose for a short period of time.

Rev. 9:1-3
1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
