CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
They are of those that rebel against the light - That is, they hate the light: compare John 3:20. It is unpleasant to them, and they perform their deeds in the night.

They know not the ways thereof - They do not see it. They work in the night.
Nor abide in the paths thereof - In the paths that the light makes. They seek out paths on which the light does not shine.

The Desire of the Righteous Granted;

"From the city men groan, And the souls of the wounded cry out; Yet God does not pay attention to folly.
"The murderer arises at dawn; He kills the poor and the needy, And at night he is as a thief.
