CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Wickedness is in the midst thereof - That is, the wickedness connected with rebellion and revolt.
Deceit and guile depart not from her streets - They are everywhere. They are found in every street and alley. They pervade all classes of the people. The word rendered "deceit" means rather "oppression." This was connected with "guile," or with "deceit." That is, wrong would be everywhere committed, and the perpetration of those wrongs would be connected with false representations, and false pretences - a state of things that might be expected in the unnatural rebellion under Absalom.
Our study of the closing scenes of the life of our Lord begins at the point where He fell into the hands of the representatives of justice; and this took place at the gate of Gethsemane and at the midnight hour. On the eastern side of Jerusalem, the ground slopes downwards to the bed of the Brook Kedron; and on the further side of the stream rises the Mount of Olives. The side of the hill was laid out in gardens or orchards belonging to the inhabitants of the city; and Gethsemane was one of these. …
James Stalker—The Trial and Death of Jesus Christ
There is nothing reliable in what they say; Their inward part is destruction itself. Their throat is an open grave; They flatter with their tongue.
His mouth is full of curses and deceit and oppression; Under his tongue is mischief and wickedness.
The wicked strut about on every side When vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
From the wicked who despoil me, My deadly enemies who surround me.
Day and night they go around her upon her walls, And iniquity and mischief are in her midst.
