Psalm 36:3 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
On the metonymical use of נפשׁ, like τὸ ὀρεκτικόν for ὄρεξις, vid., Psychol. S. 203 tr. p. 239. The climax of desire is to swallow David up, i.e., to overpower him and clear him out of the way so that there is not a trace of him left. בּלּענוּהוּ with ע before נ, as in Psalm 132:6, and frequently; on the law of the vowels which applies to this, vid., Ewald, ֗60, a. שׂמחי רעתי is a short form of expression for רעתי שׂמחים (בּ) על. To put on shame and dishonour (Psalm 109:29, cf. Psalm 18), so that these entirely cover them, and their public external appearance corresponds with their innermost nature.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
His mouth is filled with cursing and deceit and oppression; under his tongue are mischief and iniquity.
Everyone utters lies to his neighbor; with flattering lips and a double heart they speak.
"You give your mouth free rein for evil, and your tongue frames deceit.
Understand, O dullest of the people! Fools, when will you be wise?
"For my people are foolish; they know me not; they are stupid children; they have no understanding. They are 'wise'--in doing evil! But how to do good they know not."
