CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
For the terrible one - The violent one (עריץ ‛ârı̂yts), the oppressor, who had exercised cruelty over them. This, I suppose, refers to the haughty among the Jews themselves; to those who held offices of power, and who abused them to oppress the poor and needy.
Is consumed - Shall be entirely destroyed.
And all that watch for iniquity - That is, who anxiously seek for opportunities to commit iniquity.
LibraryIf it is Objected, that the Necessity which Urges us to Pray is not Always...

For You have been a defense for the helpless, A defense for the needy in his distress, A refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat; For the breath of the ruthless Is like a rain storm against a wall.
Therefore, hear the word of the LORD, O scoffers, Who rule this people who are in Jerusalem,
But the multitude of your enemies will become like fine dust, And the multitude of the ruthless ones like the chaff which blows away; And it will happen instantly, suddenly.
No one sues righteously and no one pleads honestly. They trust in confusion and speak lies; They conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity.
