Psalm 35:26 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
I the third part, Psalm 35:19 the description of the godlessness of his enemies is renewed; but the soul of the praying psalmist has become more tranquil, and accordingly the language also is more clear and moves on with its accustomed calmness. שׁקר and חנּם are genitives, having an attributive sense (vid., on 2 Samuel 22:23). The verb קרץ signifies both to pinch equals nip, Job 33:6 (cf. the Arabic karada, to cut off), and to pinch together, compress equals to wink, generally used of the eyes, but also of the lips, Proverbs 16:30, and always as an insidiously malicious gesture. אל rules over both members of the verse as in Psalm 75:6, and frequently. שׁלום in Psalm 35:20 is the word for whatever proceeds from good intentions and aims at the promotion or restoration of a harmonious relationship. רגעי־ארץ (from רגע, cf. ענוי־ארץ, Psalm 76:10, Zephaniah 2:3, צפוּניך, Psalm 83:4) are those who quietly and unostentatiously walk in the ways of God. Against such they devise mischievous, lying slanders and accusations. And with wide-opened mouth, i.e., haughty scorn, they cry, as they carouse in sight of the misfortune of those they have persecuted: now we have that which we have longed to see. האח (composed of ההּ and אח) is a cry of joy, and more especially of malignant joy at another's hurt (cf. Ezekiel 25:3).
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
If indeed you magnify yourselves against me and make my disgrace an argument against me,
For I said, "Only let them not rejoice over me, who boast against me when my foot slips!"
Let those be put to shame and disappointed altogether who seek to snatch away my life; let those be turned back and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt!
For it is not an enemy who taunts me-- then I could bear it; it is not an adversary who deals insolently with me-- then I could hide from him.
Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life! Let them be turned back and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt!
May my accusers be put to shame and consumed; with scorn and disgrace may they be covered who seek my hurt.
May my accusers be clothed with dishonor; may they be wrapped in their own shame as in a cloak!
